The FSAI (Food Safety Authority of Ireland) has published a booklet on New Food Information Regulation. The booklet gives food businesses operators (FBOs) an easy to understand overview of some of the upcoming changes to food labelling under the new food information regulations.
According to the FSAI webiste While the original objectives and components of current labelling legislation still apply, some new requirements are being introduced under Regulation No. (EU) 1169/2011, which will modernise the current system.
The booklet highlights new elements of the Regulation including allergen information, date of minimum durability, nutrition declaration, front of pack labelling and country of origin labelling.
The FSAI is encouraging all food businesses to familiarise themselves with the new regulatory requirements and download the booklet, which is available on their website.
