Consultation on amending food labelling laws when the UK leaves the EU
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) is seeking views on the required changes to food labels in the event that the UK leaves the EU in a ‘no deal’ scenario. These will make sure that current provisions in law can continue to work after the UK has left the EU.
In particular, DEFRA want views on what period of adjustment should be allowed before all food marketed in the UK must have a UK name and address on the label.
This consultation concerns food labelling in the situation that the UK leaves the EU in a ‘no deal’ scenario. It does not propose new policies on food labelling.
