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.
Helen Arrowsmith is currently a Principal Food Law Adviser and Allergen Specialist in the Regulatory Affairs Department at Campden BRI. Helen uses her
knowledge, gained over more than 17 years working with the food and drink industry, to provide advice on relevant UK and harmonised EU legislation,
to present on training courses, and to contribute to publications such as Food Law Alert.
