The Food Standards Agency (FSA) published Consultation on updates to the Food Standards Agency’s Technical Guidance on food allergen labelling and information requirements.
This consultation is being conducted as part of a routine review and update of the Allergen Labelling Technical Guidance.
The FSA is seeking feedback from stakeholders on two key guidance updates - standards for applying precautionary allergen labelling (PAL) and best practice guidance that No Gluten Containing Ingredients (NGCI) statements should not be used - both in terms of their scope and impact.
The Guidance has also been amended to ensure that references to food law in England, Wales & Northern Ireland are accurate following the UK’s exit from the EU, as well as non-technical updates to enhance clarity and understanding of the document.
