New Legal Regulations
The new legal regulations state that food businesses will be required to provide and clearly state a full ingredients list and allergen labelling on all pre-packaged food for direct sales on the premises. Prepacked for Direct Sale (PPDS) Food will legally have to display the following information on the packaging;
- Name of the food
- Full list of ingredients, including highlighted allergens
Natasha’s Law (also known as the UK Food Information Amendment) came into effect from October 2021. The new regulations apply to businesses in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, with Scotland having similar changes set out by
Food Standards Scotland.
WHY IS THE NEW
LAW SO IMPORTANT?
In the UK, it is estimated that nearly 1 in 5 people suffers from an allergy. The new legislation will be introduced to protect sufferers and offer greater transparency around what people are consuming when out of the home.
Not only does this highlight the importance of allergies but gives allergy sufferers confidence in the food that they buy and safeguards many people.
We have a range of solutions designed to reduce the risk associated with managing allergens and hopefully reducing the time you or your team need to spend doing this. Suitable for different kitchen environments and sizes of businesses, speak to our team today to discuss the best option for you.

The recipes and nutritional information uploaded onto Saffron can be exported to DayMark’s Menu Command and printed directly onto clear labels ready for pre-packed for direct sale products.
The labels can be organised, monitored, and customised by catering teams, inputting additional information such as logos, shelf life and prep data. Labels are printed in adherence to Government guidelines.
This system works well for a centralised menu arrangement as it provides consistency and conformity throughout multiple sites.
At Creed, we can support our customers to implement this system and provide the labelling system and labels through our product range.
