Changes coming to allergen labelling on pre-packed food

THE requirements for prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) food labelling will change in Wales, England, and Northern Ireland from October 1st 2021.

The new labelling aims to help protect consumers by providing potentially life-saving allergen information on the packaging.

Any business that produces PPDS food will be required to label it with the name of the food and a full ingredients list, with allergenic ingredients emphasised within the list.

Businesses need to check if their products require PPDS labelling and what they need to do to comply with the new rules.
