New food labelling laws came into force on 13th Dec 2014 (FIR) These include changes to ingredient declarations including allergen labelling and mandatory nutritional labelling for most pre-packed food.

Continuing from the 2009 Food Standards Agency (FSA) initiative to develop a calorie labeling scheme for the catering industry, the government have launched a Public Health responsibility deal to encourage caterers to provide nutritional information to customers. There are currently 563 partners signed up for the Public Health Responsibility Deal (October 2013).
A key Responsibility Deal initiative is the introduction of calorie information in high street food outlets. People will now be able to see calories on menus and menu boards and be in a better position to consider healthier choices.
Additional pledges include reformulating recipes to provide lower fat, salt, artificial Trans Fatty Acids and calorie content of meals. A new collective pledge on calorie reduction was announced on 24th March 2012 with some of the world’s biggest food and drink manufacturers and best known brands making commitments to cut and cap calories. More than three-quarters of the retail market has signed up. For more information CLICK HERE
Many companies have signed up to the initiative including Harvester Pubs, Mc Donald’s, The Compass Catering Group, Tescos and Sainsburys, with the expectation that nutritional information will be on display in 5000 outlets by the end of the year.
