Allergen Legislation – 13 December

Allergen Legislation – 13 December

Many operators are still not ready for the requirements necessitated by the imminent Allergen Legislation. From 13 December all foodservice operators will be required to provide allergen information on food sold both pre-packed and un-packed.

Responding to this, Bunzl Catering Supplies has launched a series of YouTube videos that provide operators with simple instructions for setting up and getting started with its online label service, Caterlabel.

Caterlabel from Label 2 Go already complies with the forthcoming legislation, with allergens automatically bolded in ingredients lists when ‘ticked’ as present by the operator. The YouTube videos provide operators with a step-by-step guide to ‘Getting started on Caterlabel,’ ‘Using the print list function on Caterlabel’ andSetting up your printer on Caterlabel’.

Paul Willcocks, Director, Exclusive Brands, Bunzl Catering Supplies commented: “Time is ticking for operators and we’re committed to doing everything possible to get them ready before the deadline, and then once ready, we’ll ensure operators are up, running and operationally compliant in no time. The videos showcase how simple Caterlabel is to use and how quickly operators can get their teams delivering FIR-compliant labelling.”

Operators requiring further information on how to capture and record allergen information ready for the new legislation, should call Bunzl Catering Supplies on 01372 736 300 or visit View the step-by-step guide to Caterlabel »
