Detail of outcome
There was one response to this consultation.
Seeking views on amendments to the spreadable fats, milk and milk products regulations to remove the requirement to fortify margarine.
This consultation was held on another website.
This consultation ran from
Seeking views on a proposed update to the Spreadable Fats (Marketing Standards) and Milk and Milk Products (Protection of Designations) (England) Regulations 2008. Regulation 4 requires the fortification of margarine with vitamins A and D. This goes beyond EU requirements and is ‘gold plating’. We are therefore proposing to remove this requirement by revoking regulation 4.
This is part of government’s commitment to reduce the number of regulations industry and others have to follow as part of the ‘Red Tape Challenge’.
