Food Information to Consumers regulation is a new EU law covering all aspects of food labelling and allergen information, which will apply from 13th December 2014. For packaged foods the main change will be that the 14 listed allergens will be highlighted in bold where they appear in an ingredient list. The 14 allergens are cereals containing gluten, crustaceans, eggs, fish, peanuts, soya, milk, nuts, celery, mustard, sesame, sulphur dioxide (above 10 ppm), lupin and molluscs.

The Food Information to Consumer Regulations ("FIC"), which are applicable from 13 December 2014, require food manufacturers to enhance the appearance of allergen information on product labels, to provide greater access to key information and, therefore, choice to the consumer.
As a wholesaler of vendor branded products, Brakes is committed to supporting and assisting our customers in complying with their obligations under the FIC, and has compiled the following allergen information based on information provided by such branded suppliers. This information is provided in good faith by Brakes, as a tool for our customers, but it should be noted that Brakes is reliant on the accuracy and completeness of allergen information provided by its vendor brand suppliers.This information applies to the deliberate ingredients used in the product.
Whilst Brakes does what it can to ensure that this information is up-to-date and accurate, Brakes cannot be responsible for any inaccuracies or omissions in this information by the suppliers.
Customers must always read the information appearing on the product label; this is the only accurate representation of the allergen information.
This is particularly important because, where recipes and/or formulations are changed by the suppliers, the information on this page may be inaccurate for a period of time, until such time as Brakes is notified by the relevant supplier, and such changes have been uploaded.
It is also important to note that the information provided by Brakes will not address any potential cross-contamination issues that individual products may encounter whilst at a customer unit.
