Change to food safety labelling

 

Change to food safety labelling

The UK Food Information Amendment, also known as Natasha’s Law, comes into effect from October 2021 and will require food businesses to provide full ingredient lists and allergen labelling on foods pre-packaged for direct sale.

According to the new rules, PPDS (Prepacked for Direct Sale) food will have to clearly display the following information on the packaging:

  • Name of the food.

  • Full ingredients list, with allergenic ingredients emphasised (for example in bold, italics or a different colour).

At Premier Quality Foods we would like to assist you by making sure you have the most up to date relevant information. Our IT department is currently working alongside our suppliers so that we will be able to provide you with easy to access and accurate data. We will keep you informed as to our progress, but in the meantime, the most up to date information can be located on our product packaging.

Order placing / additions

 

Order placing / additions

With effect from Monday 7th June 2021 could we kindly request that all orders are placed with our telesales team before 3.30pm on the working day prior to delivery.

Please restrict any orders after this time to additions of only 5 items or less and not full orders, additions can now only be placed up to 4.30pm Monday to Thursday and 4.30pm Saturday. If full orders are placed after this time we can arrange for the order to be collected from our depot by yourselves, alternatively we will arrange delivery on your next scheduled delivery day.

All additions need to be processed by our warehouse staff prior to our vehicles leaving the depot on a morning. Recently the high numbers of orders / additions have resulted in our vehicles leaving the depot later than scheduled this is having an impact on deliveries to our customers.

Thank you for your cooperation.

 

March Newsletter

Reducing Plastic Packaging
Reducing plastic packaging and waste currently stands at the forefront of developments within the food industry. In addition to well publicised changes relating to single use plastic on the high street we are seeing a host of changes from our suppliers relating to the way they package, store and transport their goods.

Flavours Foods have also been looking at ways to lessen their environmental impact and have subsequently made a number of changes throughout the company in order to achieve this. The majority of these changes are in-house and will go unnoticed by our customers, it has however been noted that the plastic lids provided with the 1kg Marinated Meats are non ethical in terms of environmental controls.  With this in mind the company has decided that from 2nd March 2020 lids will no longer be supplied with the marinated meat products.  The products will still be packaged and fully sealed with protective film.
