Protect your customers and your business with Brother food to go labelling solutions
As customer needs evolve, with changing dietary preferences and growing numbers of people affected by food allergies, effective labelling is more important than ever. Especially as the impending introduction of The Food Information Regulations 2019 (commonly referred to as Natasha’s Law) and the coverage around it have put food safety in the spotlight. With full ingredient labelling mandatory for all food to go prepacked for direct sale from October 1st, 2021, you’ll need to create crystal clear, informative labels to address issues with allergen risks. Giving customers clarity on ingredients and allergens enables them to make more confident choices. So, they’ll keep coming back for more, knowing you’re a business they can trust.
Ingredient and allergen labelling made simple
Brother’s grab-and-go food labelling solutions make it easy and efficient for you to maintain high standards and stay on the right side of food labelling regulations. Our reliable label printers produce highly legible, long-lasting labels detailing all necessary information, from ingredients and allergens to use-by dates, prices and barcodes. There’s no need for ink or toners, so you can keep costs low, and reduce wastage by using the same roll for multiple label designs. It’s simple to maintain security, too. The information you need is stored digitally, with access only available to administrators. This helps you avoid errors or tampering and maintain consistency and accuracy.
Introducing Natasha's Law
With Natasha's Law coming into force in October 2021, are you confident your business will be compliant? Natasha’s Law is designed to give those with allergies complete certainty that the PPDS food they are buying is safe for them to eat.
At the moment, businesses selling food prepared on the same premises where it is sold don’t need to put allergen information on the label, which means allergy sufferers have to ask staff for the information they need to buy with confidence.
Now parliament has tightened the rules, legislating so foods like these must come with a full list of ingredients.
At the time of writing, the industry is still working to absorb and interpret much of the precise detail of Natasha’s Law, but what do we know so far?
Working with experts from NT Assure, Nutritics and Labelling Solutions, we've created an in-depth e-book to help food businesses get up to speed with the new legislation and discover how they can achieve compliance.
