In October 2021, the UK Food Information Amendment will be introduced into law requiring on-site food sellers to provide customers with full ingredient lists and allergen information on all pre-packaged food items. The team at TriplePs share with unLTD the system they have developed which can be installed and ready
for the changes in regulation.
What is Natasha’s Law?
In October 2021, the UK Food Information Amendment will be introduced into law requiring on-site food sellers to provide customers with full ingredient lists and allergen information on all pre-packaged food items. It is known as Natasha’s Law following the death of the 15-year-old who suffered a reaction to food sold at Heathrow Airport.
The challenge is to go further.
The food services industry – restaurants, takeaways, mobile and event catering – has, according to the latest published figures for 2018, a combined annual turnover of £73billion. This means there is a substantial risk due to the amount of food prepared and sold.
After reviewing the risks and problems, our development team have tackled the challenge head on. TriplePs are used to solving problems, and have been developed a system which can be installed and ready for October 2021.
How can the TriplePs Food Ordering Service help make it safer for the customer?
The common approach to the law is to include additional information on the product labels. However, this still puts the emphasis on customers taking responsibility for identifying potential allergens.
The TriplePs approach is an app which allows customers to order food and match it against their pre-loaded allergen information, coupled with the capture of ingredients by the restaurant or takeaway as they setup their menu.
This alerts the customer at the point of ordering of the potential risk to health, and prevents the order being placed.
