Is your business ready for Natasha’s Law?

Natasha’s Law, which comes into effect from October 2021, will require food businesses to provide full ingredient lists and allergen labelling on goods packaged for sale on the premises. The law has been introduced following the tragic death of Natasha Ednan-Laperouse, who suffered an allergic reaction to an undeclared ingredient in a prepacked baguette.

Pre-packed for Direct Sales food is food that is packaged at the same place it is offered to customers and is in the packaging before it is ordered.  But what needs to be displayed on the packaging?

  • Name of the food
  • Full ingredients list, with allergen ingredients emphasised (e.g. in bold, italics or a different colour)

The 14 allergens that must be highlighted are:

  1. Celery
  2. Crustaceans
  3. Eggs
  4. Fish
  5. Gluten
  6. Lupin
  7. Milk
  8. Molluscs
  9. Mustard
  10. Nuts
  11. Peanuts
  12. Sesame Seeds
  13. Soya
  14. Sulphur Dioxide

How we can help?

CSY have provided allergy labelling for a number of years so our customers are all ready for Natasha’s Law. Our partnership with Avery Berkel means our farm shop, deli & butchery customers can be prepared for labelling prepackaged items correctly with all the right information in the right format. We also recently started a partnership with IndiCater, for recipe management, so we can make sure you have all the bases covered.
