We are currently reviewing our approach to food labelling, working closely with the Food Standards Agency. This work includes examining domestic food allergen regulations, guidance and ways of working to identify options for practical and proportionate improvements to the current system. We will invite views from stakeholders including patient and campaign groups representing those with food allergies and the food and drink industry to focus on changes that enhance protection of consumers.
