Food Regulations solved with Food Solutions.

Food labels - problem solved

We have also been working on a labelling resource to help you with the complex problem of food labelling. Our labelling website includes example labels, links to the regulations, directives and guidance on food labelling. This means you can find the infomation you need quickly and easily, saving you time and money.

Your voice in Europe

Food Solutions members were kept fully informed of the new allergen information requirements and we were involved in the consultations which took place for years before the regulation became law. If you were taken by surprise, perhaps you need to make sure you keep up to date with legislation. You can also make your voice heard.

Why improve your Hygiene Rating?

A National Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS) has been adopted by all of the Local Authorities in Wales and nearly all in England. At present food businesses can choose to display their FHRS rating, those with level 5 do so others with lower ratings may not.

Be proud to display your score before the law forces you to - anyone can see your rating on line now. Soon the law is going to change and you will have to display your FHRS rating. The Food Standards Agency (FSA) is doing all that it can to encourage improvement in low performing food outlets.

Jeff Rooker the past Chair of the FSA said "Telling consumers about hygiene standards in food outlets gives them greater choice and the power to vote with their feet – they are able to choose to eat at the places with the highest standards and avoid those that don’t meet the grade".
