Food Labelling Laws and Regulations

Having spoken to the Regional Catering Manager of the National Trust I have been researching the new legislation that is being introduced on December 13th 2014 that affects the labelling of what was previously known as ‘gluten-free’ food and its implications on my proposal.  Obviously a proposal that was based around ‘gluten-free’ needs to be adapted to suit the new legislation.  I have been reading these PDF’s that have been produced by Government Agencies regarding the regulations:

Other sites that I have been using for reference for this include:
