From Wednesday 6 April 2022, retailers who provide pre-packaged food will be required to provide calorie and portion information on all products and menus under new regulations.

The regulations, however, only apply to retailers with more than 250 staff members, but some symbol group retailers may also be affected, as the legislation stems from the upcoming HFSS rules. Current advise for The Fed members are that if you are unsure whether the regulations affect you, please contact your symbol group to confirm.

The labelling requirements include food-to-go products that are not pre-packaged by suppliers, such as bakery products ans hot beverages. This information must be viable on all platforms, including online. Retailers will also be required to display signs showing adults recommended daily calorie consumption with the statement “adults need around 2000 kcal per day”.
