The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has published a leaflet aimed at businesses selling prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) food.

From October 1, 2021 the requirements for PPDS food labelling will change in Wales, England, and Northern Ireland. The new labelling will help protect your consumers by providing potentially life-saving allergen information on the packaging.

Any business that produces PPDS food will be required to label it with the name of the food and a full ingredients list, with allergenic ingredients emphasised within the list.

Businesses need to check if their products require PPDS labelling and what they need to do to comply with the new rules.
