The Food Information for Consumers Regulation (EU FIC) built on current allergen labelling provisions for pre-packed foods. it means that all foods sold for direct sale, whether pre-packed or non-packed, require allergen information about 14 allergens to be:

At McCartney Foodservice, we are subscribed to the Erudus compiled allergen information. We can check the ingredients of any food items we stock and print out full product information including all nutrition and allergen information for it. Using this system means you can find out whether products 'contain' or 'may contain' any of the 14 major allergens whenever you want. In addition, you can discover if a product is suitable for any specific dietary requirements, including vegetarian, vegan, kosher and halal.
