Natasha's Law: Our Solutions


Click the button below to watch the recording of our webinar, Natasha's Law: The New Regulation & Effective Allergen Management. 

What is Natasha's Law? 

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 (bold, italics or alternative colour)

 

When will the law be implemented?

Natasha's Law (also known as the UK Food Information Amendment) will come into effect from October 2021. The new regulations will 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.

“The Executive at The Order of St John Care Trust feel that the support Saffron offers to the chef is invaluable. It gives them the opportunity to broaden the range of recipes offered to the residents whilst ensuring a high emphasis is placed on nutritional value. Chefs can either refer to the recipe library already uploaded, or add their own to identify allergens and check the balance of the meal. The fact that all recipes are costed with the most up to date OSJCT price file means that the chefs no longer have to worry about calculating this themselves and going over budget.”
