Allergen information and labelling
Food businesses must inform customers if any products they provide contain any of the 14 allergens as an ingredient.
There are a number of ways in which allergen information can be provided to you. This can depend on the type of food you buy and the type of food business you order from.
The 14 allergens must be emphasised within the ingredients list of pre-packed food or drink. This can be done, for example, by using bold, italic or coloured type, to make the allergen ingredients easier to spot.
Non-prepacked (loose) food
Food businesses such as a bakery, butcher, or delicatessen, must provide you with allergen information for any loose item you buy that contains any of the 14 allergens.
