What is Natasha’s Law?
As of 1st October 2021, any business based in the UK must clearly label all foods prepared and packed on their premises. The purpose of this new legislation is to give allergenic ingredients
more prominence on product labels in order to protect hypersensitive consumers and give them greater confidence in the food they buy, following the tragic death of Natasha Ednan-Lapérouse in 2016.
All pre-packed for direct sale foods will now need to have
• The name of the foods
• A full ingredients list with the 14 allergens required to be declared by food law emphasised on the ingredients list if present.
• Clearly label all foods prepared and pre-packed for direct sales (PPDS) on their premises.
• Food operators can get allergen information from Erudus
