Details

The British Retail Consortium (BRC) guidance is based on the requirements of the EU Regulation 1169/2011 on the provision of food information to consumers (EU FIC), as well as the UK health ministers’ stated preference for a hybrid FoP scheme: combining red, amber, green colours with ‘% guideline daily amounts/reference intakes’.

The BRC has been working closely with the Food & Drink Federation and others, to ensure that final format proposals are ones that can be used by all consumers and will be practicable for food businesses to adopt and deliver.

The deadline to send responses and any queries is Wednesday 27 February 2013.
