Campden BRI launches Brexit Hub

Campden BRI has launched a centralised information service to help the food industry deal with issues relating to the UK’s exit from the EU.

The Brexit Hub is designed as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for all regulatory and legislative changes associated with Brexit. It covers a broad range of areas including labelling, food law, hygiene, consumer protection, and nutrition and health claims.

The dedicated hub has been put together by Campden BRI’s regulatory services experts who already provide the industry with regular updates on issues relating to food law.

Sharon Morey, UK and EU regulatory affairs manager at Campden BRI, said: “Our regular contact with the key players in the food industry shows clearly that there is a huge amount of uncertainty on the implications of Brexit and the need for clarity. We’ve put together the Brexit Hub to pull together regulatory and legislative updates from all relevant government agencies, trade bodies and relevant organisations so that food and drink companies can find all the information they need in one place.”

The hub also includes comprehensive links to the latest government updates, the ability to submit questions and a frequently answered questions section.

Morey added: “Finding information on such a wide-ranging and complex issue is a bit of a minefield. We’re hoping that pooling the critical information in one place will help make a difficult situation that much easier for the UK food and drink industry.”

The Brexit Hub is a subscription service, with a free introductory trial. It covers regulatory and legislative issues on a broad range of topics, including: general food law, hygiene, official controls, labelling, nutrition and health claims, lot marketing, GMOs, materials and articles in contact with food, weight control, contaminants, contaminants - radiation, contaminants - veterinary medicinal products, pesticides, food additives, flavourings, animal health and welfare, product specific controls, quick-frozen foods, fish labelling, spirit drinks, packaging essential requirements, irradiation, extraction solvents, fortification, novel foods, consumer protection, food for specific groups and drinking water.
