“With the amalgamation of several EU Directives on food additives, and the changes in the food categorisation system, there is certainly a risk that some companies may unwittingly be non-compliant with the current legislation,” said Campden BRI Event Director Helen French, a Campden BRI Food Law Advisor. “This seminar will focus on understanding the legislation and its regular amendments, and provide practical scenarios in which to apply the legislation. The legislation surrounding flavourings will be discussed, including flavouring categories, the EU positive list for flavouring substances and the smoke flavouring positive list. The issue of natural colours and colouring foods will also be discussed. In addition, attendees will hear about the changes that the Food Information to Consumers Regulation has brought about for additives labelling and have the opportunity to participate in a labelling workshop.”
