FSA explains PPDS changes for food businesses
The Food Standards Agency's (FSA’s) are running a webinar for UK food businesses on the topic of prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) food labelling.

From 1 October 2021, the requirements for labelling on prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) foods will change in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The new labelling requirements will 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 to show the name of the food and the ingredients list. This includes emphasising within the ingredients list any of the 14 allergens used in the product, as required by food law.

At this webinar, we will give background to the new allergen labelling changes, also known as Natasha’s Law. We will help small and micro food businesses to better understand what PPDS is, how it effects your food business and how you can ensure you are compliant with the new regulations from 1 October 2021.

Spaces are limited and will operate on a first come first served basis. Registration will close on Wednesday 28 July.
