Ireland’s FSA Asks For Opinions On One Exception To EU Nutrition Labeling Regulation

July 18, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
An EU regulation published in December 2014 requires food companies to put nutrition information on prepackaged foods, with some exemptions, as a way to tackle the obesity problem. The rules are set to take effect in December. Meanwhile, the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) is asking for opinions, via a “national consultation,” on one exemption from the rules having to do with “small quantities.” These generally are foods supplied directly by the manufacturer to the consumer or to local retailers. The consultation is looking for opinions on how to better define the term “small quantities of product.”
