Time is running out to implement Natasha’s Law

14 April 2021

When does Natasha’s Law come into affect?

Businesses are running out of time to implement Natasha’s Law, before it comes into effect on 1 October 2021 across England, Wales & Northern Ireland.

The new regulations will require all food packaged for sale on-premises to carry allergen information on the label.

October sounds like a long time away, especially in light of the difficult 2020 for the hospitality industry, but larger businesses are already getting ahead of the game.

“We know this is a challenging time for food businesses, but we encourage them to check if they are affected by this new law and what they need to do to meet the requirements.
It’s important to get it right, not just for their business, but for the millions of people in the UK living with a food allergy or intolerance. Everyone deserves to be able to make safer choices when they buy their food”

Rebecca Sudworth, director of policy at the Food Standards Agency
