I was just updating our allergen procedure, to comply with BRC which says we must consider allergens identified in the legislation in the country of sale. I've looked up the allergens defined in the legislation for the countries we sell to, but I can't find anything for Turkey...
Is anyone is familiar with the legislation for Turkey (the country, not food!)
