Food Labelling Changes

From 1 October 2021 the requirements for labelling pre-packed for direct sale (PPDS) food will change across the UK.

This applies to any food business that produces PPDS food, including kebab shops, burger restaurants, pizzerias, fried chicken shops, Chinese takeaways, fish and chip shops, and restaurants selling food to go.

PPDS food is food that is packaged at the same place it is offered or sold to consumers. It is a single item, consisting of the food and its packaging that is ready for presentation to the consumer before it is ordered or selected.

The changes mean that food packaged before the consumer orders or selects it, and sold on the same premises (or site where a business operates from more than one location such as a shopping centre) it is packaged at, will require labelling.

For restaurants and takeaways this may mean changes to labelling for foods such as dips, salads, breads and other pre-packed products.

When Ordara was first installed, I could not imagine that it was going to be this effective. Our turnover has increased by 40% and we are avoiding mistakes we used to make on a regular basis. Thank you
