Natasha’s Law, more formally known as ‘prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) requirements’, is due to be implemented as of Friday, 1st October 2021.

The technical guidance for prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) foods was issued in the latest update of the Food Standards Agency’s (FSA) food allergen labelling and information requirements – technical guidance in June 2020.

These changes will require food businesses to label PPDS food with a full list of ingredients containing emphasised allergens within, bringing the provision of allergen information in line with labelling for prepacked food.

Please see our guide which we have put together to help make sense of allergens and the requirements of the new legislation. View it here
