About this course
On the 13th December 2014 new European legislation, Food Information Regulations for Consumers (EUFIC) comes into force. The legislation will not only mean some major changes to what labels contain and how the information is presented but as the name suggests, how the public are informed about the food in general.
The legislation will affect all businesses that sell food to the public and includes food that is packaged and not packaged.
Food labelling legislation is complex and includes many regulations, acts and articles. This course aims to give you a broad overview of current UK food labelling legislation to help you understand what you need to do to comply.
Following this course, we recommend you seek approval from either a specialist legal advisor, Environmental Health Officer or Trading Standards Officer.
