Food labelling

Food labelling helps consumers get information about their food. It is important this information is accurate and not confusing so consumers can make informed choices about the food they buy.

From December 2014 you will have to provide allergen information for food sold unpackaged, such as in restaurants, sandwich bars, on deli counters and in bakeries.

You should prepare for this and ensure that you train all serving staff so that they can provide clear and accurate allergen information.
