Our quick guide to food allergen labels should help you to get started, what’s more, you can download our free food allergy stickers to use in your small food business.
Allergen Labelling and the Law
If you create and package food products for sale (such as packaged sandwiches, pies, ready-meals and cakes), then the law requires you to label your food products with its ingredients, including the presence of allergens.
The European Provision of Food Information to Consumers Regulation 2011 also means that, as of December 2014, allergen information must be provided for all food sold, whether packaged or loose (such as loose bakery items, deli foods and cooked-to-order meals).
For pre-packaged foods (such as packaged sandwiches, boxed salads or individually wrapped pastries) that you receive from a supplier, allergens must be highlighted in the ingredients list, such as by listing them in capital letters, a different colour, or in bold font on the food’s packaging. Packaged foods must also label any derivatives of allergenic foods, such as stating that albumen is egg. If a customer asks about the allergen content of a pre-packaged food then you can inform them by referring to the product’s packaging.
Currently, for foods sold loose (such as at a café, deli, market or food truck) that you package on the premises for sale, accurate allergen information must either be displayed on a board by the point of sale, or told to customers verbally on request. All food businesses, no matter their size, are responsible for providing clear and accurate allergen information for any foods that they sell or serve to customers, and there must be at least one staff member available on each shift who knows the accurate allergen information for each food product.
However, Natasha’s Law will soon be coming into force and changing these requirements.
What is Natasha’s Law?
Natasha’s Law is a new food labelling legislation that is due to come into force in England in 2021, with similar arrangements expected to follow in other nations for a UK-wide approach. It was created following the death of 15 year old Natasha Ednan-Laperouse, who had a fatal allergic reaction to a Pret a Manager baguette that contained sesame seeds. Once Natasha’s Law is enforced, it will require businesses to label food that is pre-packed directly for sale and made on the premises with a full list of ingredients, including allergens.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is currently developing guidance on the list of foods to which Natasha’s Law will apply. This is due to be published on the 1st October 2019, giving food businesses a two-year transition period to prepare for these new requirements.

Nice Label Pharmaceutical Labelling Solution
Nicelabel created a standardized, global labelling strategy benefits pharmaceutical companies.
For pharmaceutical manufacturers, quality is paramount. And this high level of quality has to be present in all phases of the manufacturing process, from production to shipping and from product to label. Let’s take labels as an example. Labelling errors can lead to costly product reworking, quarantine or, as in the case of Mirtazapine, recalls. Why, so far into the 21st century, are we still having to talk about labelling errors? In our experience, the answer lies in a lack of standardization, centralization and system integration.
The road to system fragmentation There can be a variety of reasons that lead to a de-centralized approach to labelling. Perhaps a pharmaceutical manufacturer has gone through a number of mergers and acquisitions, inheriting a series of homegrown, independent labelling solutions along the way. Or perhaps a company has taken a one-off approach to regulatory compliance, purchasing independent systems to address each compliance need, such as serialization or aggregation.
While this approach addresses the immediate compliance need, it results in a series of silos – disparate systems that don’t interact with one another. Whatever the road taken, the destination is the same. Decoupled labelling processes that make it difficult to ensure an accurate, efficient labelling process. In this paper, we address four of the most common labelling challenges that arise from a decentralized approach to labelling, and how you can address these.
