The Food Standards Agency (FSA) welcomes new research published today, showing that people with food allergies and intolerances are more confident about eating out since allergen information rules were introduced in 2014. The study presents strong evidence that the legislation has had a positive impact and that good allergen information is good for business.
FSA Chair, Heather Hancock, has announced on behalf of the FSA, Defra, Food Standards Scotland and devolved administrations the re-appointment of eight existing members to the independent Advisory Committee on Animal Feedingstuffs.
The Advisory Committee for Novel Food and Processes (ACNFP) has reviewed two applications from a companies seeking authorisation under the simplified approval novel foods procedure to use their products in the European Union (EU). The ACNFP, which is an independent committee of scientists appointed by the FSA, has completed its assessment and is now asking for comments on their draft opinions.
FSA has published research carried out by Ipsos MORI, Food handlers and norovirus transmission: Social science insights. This study aimed to help stop the 'winter vomiting bug' norovirus from spreading, by understanding and improving food handler behaviours.
