Westminster Food & Nutrition Forum

The future of food labelling in the UK - industry standards, transparency in the supply chain and promoting British produce

Morning, Tuesday, 13th November 2018

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will focus on the next steps for food labelling in the UK.


Timed to follow Defra’s recently concluded The future for food, farming and the environment consultation, and with the Government response to the consultation due in the autumn, delegates will discuss the impact that any changes - such as a renewed focus on promoting animal welfare and environmental standards - will have on front and back of pack labelling.


Planned sessions will look at future food labelling policy, including the view from Defra. Those attending will discuss the priorities for food labelling and its impact across the supply chain, including discussion on possible schemes to demonstrate animal welfare and environmental standards; opportunities and challenges for extending labelling to the alcohol industry; and food labelling post-Brexit.


Sessions will also consider how best to use labelling to promote British produce both domestically and abroad.
