On 1 October 2021, the law on allergen labelling for pre-packed for direct sale (PPDS) foods will change. This means that any food business selling PPDS foods will have to include full ingredients on the product label with allergenic ingredients emphasised within that list. The Food Standards Agency’s (FSA) ambition is for the UK to be the best place in the world to be a hypersensitive consumer. They want to improve the quality of life for people living with food hypersensitivity and support them to make safe, informed food choices to effectively manage risk. The upcoming changes to allergen labelling is a positive step for the two million people living with a diagnosed food allergy in the UK, as well as for those living with food intolerance and coeliac disease.
Cater Express, although does not produce or sell PPDS Foods, are committed to ensuring that our customers and their guests are informed, and made safe with the foods that we provide. That is why Cater Express is ensuring that all our foods are properly labelled with all ingredients, and that our customers and guests are educated with this information. In conjunction with this policy, Cater Express will clearly label all of our foods with allergen information.
