Abstract

These Regulations amend the Food Information (Wales) Regulations 2014 to insert a new regulation (5A), which provides that food that is prepacked for direct sale, whether supplied to a final consumer or to a mass caterer, must have a list of ingredients, including allergen information, provided directly on the package or on a label attached to the package and a new regulation (6A), which provides that food that is prepacked for direct sale, whether supplied to a final consumer or to a mass caterer, must have the name of the food provided directly on the package or on a label attached to the package. Regulations 5 and 6 do no longer apply to food that is prepacked for direct sale. A consequential amendment is made to enforcement provisions.
