UK Food Packaging and Labelling Changes Workshops
On the 20th and 21st June, 2023 Bord Bia will host a series of in-person workshops focussed on important upcoming regulatory changes for labelling and packaging food and drink in the UK.
Food labelling changes:
From 31st December 2023 all pre-packed foods being placed on the GB market will need to comply to UK food labelling requirements. This includes a requirement to include the address of a registered Food Business Operator (‘FBO’) address on the label. In these workshops, we will outline the changes required for retail and food service providers, the requirements to have a UK registered FBO and the implementation options that are available to Irish customers. Products that do not meet these requirements are unlikely to be accepted by UK retail and food service customers and companies are also open to enforcement actions from the UK market authorities.
Extended Producer Responsibility – Packaging:
The UK is implementing changes in the management and tracking of packaging being placed on the UK market. This includes proposed new legislation in relation to Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) and the planned rollout of the Deposit Returns Scheme (DRS) in the UK.
These workshops will be run by Bord Bia in partnership with PerformanSC Consultancy and Valpak.
