Guidance on labelling of food sold prepacked for direct sale

2 documents for this subject


From 1 October 2021 the requirements for labelling food sold PPDS will change in Scotland. The new labelling will help inform and protect your consumers by providing ingredient and allergen information on the packaging.

This guidance is intended to help you, as a food business operator, check whether you are affected by the changes to the labelling rules for food, including drink, sold prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) and, if you are affected, what you need to do to meet the new legal requirements.
