The UK Food Information Amendment, also known as Natasha’s Law, comes into effect from October 2021 and will require all food businesses to provide full ingredient lists and allergen labelling on foods prepackaged for direct sale on the premises.


This webinar is in partnership with LUPC and Panache Consultancy. 

From 1 October 2021, the requirements for pre-packed for direct sale (PPDS) food labelling will change in Wales, England, and Northern Ireland.

These changes extend the already established allergy labelling requirements to products made on the premises they are being sold at, in a bid to help protect consumers by providing potentially life-saving allergen information on the packaging. Whilst the requirements are quite straightforward, the introduction of Natasha's Law is likely to create some challenges to caterers and particularly with  COVID -19  still impacting businesses, there is likely to be a continued reliance on packaged products, so it is imperative that this is done correctly.

We will discuss the impact of COVID- 19 on the catering environment and discuss how to  navigate  a  return to normal services post COVID and the impact on compliance.

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.
