 Thank you for the help. Is this the latest? I could not find it in my earlier search as I did not have the document number. Can you please tell me how to know whether an EU directive is the latest one?Are the old ones (which are repealed) not there in the Eu website?

Hi Poulami,

I must admit keeping up to date with food law and amendments is like trying to find your way out of the most complicated maze in the world - blindfolded. Below is a good source and starting point I often use, it's a site maintained by Dr D J Jukes at The University of Reading, UK: Latest UK and EU Food Law

Hello everybody

Regarding allegern I think that it can be very easy or very complicated.

AS far as Europe concerns, the allergens are clearly well specified on the regulation.
As far as I know, Kraft has its own policy about allergens ( mostly of it is in line with the regulations all over the world)
On the other hand, if you are working for a international market then you should be aware of the allergen related regulations on each country.
Finally, as a producer, you can advised your clients according the information you get. For instance, chestnut are not considered as allergen in Europe however it has been proved that there is a real cross-allergy between chestnut and other nuts.

Simon, we, at least I, know that your intention is always for good

BEst regards
Esther

Why Esther what did or didn't I do? :smile:

By the way I think your advice about considering the allergens and indeed legislation in the countries you sell your products is very important.

Simon

Esther has said it best.

Allergens are treated on a country by country basis (or region for EU). What may be an allergen in one country may not be an allergen in the another. SO if you are exporting to a country - find out what their REGULATED allergens are - then deal with them accordingly. Otherwise the list can be too long to handle - (and counting).

This is how I approached the Risk assesment part. Took ages so may help someone in need. This is based around the FSA document on allergen labelling and control, and will be incorporated into my HACCP.
