Defra and The Food Standards Agency (FSA) have been running a series of workshops on how allergen information is provided for food products.

The workshops are for 16 -24-year-old food allergy consumers specifically. It’s an opportunity for them to share their views on this subject and most importantly to help Defra and the FSA to design the right policy to make food safer for consumers. They don’t need to prepare anything in advance, just come along and be part of the discussion.  

The Department for Environment, food and Rural Affairs and the Food Standards Agency have been conducting a review into allergen information provision. We have recently launched a consultation that seeks views on different options to improve the provision of allergen information to consumers on food that is prepacked for direct sale (PPDS).

(Note: PPDS foods are categorised as those that are packed on the same premise from which they are sold – such as a packaged sandwich or salad made by staff earlier in the day and placed on a shelf for purchase.

Time and location

The workshop will be held at: Defra, 2 Marsham Street, London, SW1P 4DF on Thursday 14 March. 

Please arrive at 10:30. The workshop will finish at 13:30.

Note: We will be covering travel expenses to help you get there.
