Subject Keywords: This consultation sets out our proposals for the draft Food Information Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2013 to provide the structure for the enforcement of food information to consumers, as well as providing for certain measures allowed by the European Regulation.
Topic: Obesity
Type: Policy
Region: Northern Ireland

Food labelling in Northern Ireland has been covered until now by the Food Labelling Regulations (Northern Ireland) 1996 (FLR) as amended and supported by a number of sector specific pieces of legislation. Commission Regulation (EU) 1169/2011 regarding the provision of food Information to consumers (FIC) draws together labelling regulations across the European Union, providing a level playing field for all food businesses across all Member States. The aims of FIC are to improve the information provided to consumers so that they are able to make informed choices about the food they buy, and to update legislation to reflect current industry practice and consumers’ changing information needs.
