Allergy UK welcomes Natasha's Law
Allergy UK welcomes the new law laid in parliament on 5th September, known as ‘Natasha’s Law’. This new legislation requires foods pre-packed for direct sale (PPDS) to have full ingredients listed on the packaging label with allergens emphasised, and will come into force in October 2021.
Carla Jones, Allergy UK’s CEO says: “At Allergy UK we believe that the food industry needs to do more than just the bare minimum when it comes to catering for the allergic community. This move towards full ingredient labelling for pre-packed for direct sale foods will improve the lives of the allergic customer and it is warmly welcomed here at Allergy UK.”
