Food Safety Regulatory Change

New European legislation, called the Food Information for Consumers Regulation (EU FIC), became law in the UK on 13th December 2014.

This new regulation changes the way allergen information should appear on labels and on food that is pre‑packed, sold loose or served. The EU FIC brings general and nutrition labelling together into a single regulation to simplify and consolidate existing labelling legislation. These changes impact all businesses involved in food manufacturing but also impact every retail, sandwich bar, café, canteen and restaurant that sells wrapped and unwrapped food.

This course is for anyone involved in the preparation, serving or managing of food. This course provides an understanding of food allergies and intolerances.  It also provides an overview of the relevant precautions that should be taken.
