FSA food labelling survey – have your say

Date Published: 08/07/2006

Did you know that the nutrition labelling required on prepackaged foods is under review, and that this may affect your business next year? Here’s your chance to share your view.

The Food Standards Agency has commissioned Leatherhead Food International to survey the UK food industry to assess the impact on business if nutrition labelling becomes compulsory through amendment of EC Directive 90/496/EEC.

To achieve an accurate picture of the use of nutrition labelling across the UK, the FSA needs to gain information from a wide range of food producers, from small scale to multi-national.

You can take part in the survey by following this link:www.nutritionlabelling.com.

Your participation will ensure that the costs to industry of proposed changes are considered in depth before revision of the nutrition labelling legislation. Complete confidentially of responses is assured.

Should you have any queries regarding the survey, or any of the questions in the questionnaire, you can contact:
