Title:

Food labelling regulation - implementation, impact and the future for UK policy

Where:

Central London

Start Date:

Tuesday 13th September

Description:

This seminar will be an opportunity to discuss next steps for food labelling and consumer information policy in the UK.

 

It is scheduled with the European Commission’s new Food Information to Consumer regulations (FIC) - aimed at improved legible nutritional information - becoming mandatory from December 2016, and with significant developments in relevant UK food and nutrition policy including the Government’s childhood obesity strategy and Public Health England’s recent sugar reduction report, with proposals including separating free sugars from total sugars on food packaging and clearer portion sizing information.

 

Planned sessions will also assess the future of country-of-origin, after recent calls by MPs for clearer origin labelling to support UK farming, next steps for GMO labelling, and progress on the enforcement of food regulations.

 

We are delighted that Stephen Pugh, Course Coordinator, Better Training, Safer Food, European Commission and Bryonie Hollaert, Company Nutritionist, Wm Morrison Supermarkets have agreed to deliver a keynote address at this seminar.

 

Further confirmed speakers include: Caroline Benjamin, Director, Food Allergy Training Consultancy; Rend Platings, Founder, Sugarwise; Professor Monique Raats, Director, Food, Consumer Behaviour and Health Research Centre, University of Surrey; Nicky Strong, Consultant, Bond Dickinson and Anna Taylor, Executive Director, The Food Foundation.
