What does the Food Information to Consumers Regulation (FIC) mean for me?

The Food Information for Consumers Regulation (FIC) which became law progressively between December 2011 and December 2016, is the culmination of many years discussion. Food labelling is complicated and has a plethora of regulations and directives which applied generally or to particular foods or processes. The FIC attempts to simplify labelling law, but extends requirements in some areas.

There are many European and UK regulations and directives which have been revoked.

Are you confident of your allergen policy?

All food whether sold pre-packed or loose must have allegen information provided for the consumer.
