Food Allergy
- Food Safety
In its proposal for regulation on "provision of food information to consumers", the European Commission proposes that all food containing allergenic substances must be labeled, whereas in the current legislation only pre-packaged food is covered. This means that restaurants and catering establishments would have to indicated the presence of allergenic substances and therefore more informed and safe choice for people with food allergies. A report on this proposal should be discussed by the Parliament's Environment and Health (ENVI) Committee on the 16th of March, and the text may be discussed in plenary session at the European Parliament in June. EFA is currently preparing a briefing for its members on this regulation. For more information on this proposal: click here.
