Food Allergens and Your Business
After the well-publicised fatal consequences of undeclared allergens, Natasha’s Law came into effect on 1st October 2021. This law has made significant changes to the legal requirements for pre-packaged foods in the UK, making it essential for organisations of all sizes within the Food & Drink industry to fully understand this legislation.
During our ‘Food Allergens and your Business’ panel discussion, several food industry professionals discuss the key details surrounding allergens, contamination risk and the legal requirements that businesses within the Food & Drink sector should be working towards.
