The Food Information Regulations 2014 is now with us. Not unexpectedly these regulations put EU 1169/2011 into place for the UK.

Those already familiar with 1169/2011 (who isn’t?) will find no real surprises in this 37 page document. Perhaps of most interest are the revocations, for example not all of the Food Labelling Regulations 1996 are yet revoked until December 2018. The derogation relating to minced meat standards in 1169/2011 requires the use of a National Mark for the UK which is given here in Schedule 2 (it’s not much of a mark to be honest). There is also a lot of detail about consequential and minor amendments to various existing regulations.
