The UK Food Calorie Labelling Law, comes into effect from April 2022. The government has introduced legislation to implement mandatory calorie labelling among large food businesses (businesses with 250 or more employees) in the out of home sector in an effort to tackle obesity levels.


This webinar is in partnership with Panache Consultancy. 

From April 2022, except for certain exempt businesses, the requirement to calorie label extends to any business with 250 or more employees (‘a qualifying business’) which offers for sale non-prepacked food or drink suitable for immediate consumption by the person who buys it.

For example, the types of businesses covered by the requirement include (but may not be limited to):

  • restaurants, fast food outlets, cafes, pubs and supermarkets
  • home delivery services and third-party apps selling food that is in scope
  • cafes and takeaways within larger shops and venues, such as supermarkets, department stores, and entertainment venues such as cinemas
  • specialist food stores, delicatessens, sweet shops and bakeries
  • contract catering – for example, for events and canteens
  • domestic transport businesses including planes, trains, ferries and other forms of water transport within the UK

The course offers an outline to the legal requirements; practical implementation advice and the opportunity to ask questions about the legislation and consequences of noncompliance.

The session will last 30 minutes, with an opportunity for questions after.
