Allergen labelling for foods prepacked for direct sale (PPDS)

From 1 October 2021 in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland, any food that is prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) must have labelling that displays the name of the product as well as the full list of ingredients with the allergens emphasised. This new law is colloquially known as Natasha’s Law. To explain the changes, Helen Arrowsmith, Principal Food Adviser and Allergen Specialist at Campden BRI takes us through the legislation and helps you decide whether it applies to you and your products.
