Save Lives - Help the small business survive
Promote Government & Industry Collaboration
Control Catering are calling on the Government to create a "single source of truth" for nutritional and allergen information for all food entering the UK supply chain. Small independent businesses will then be able to draw on this information and present accurate information to their consumers.
We have backing from MP's and the UK Hospitality organisation amongst others.
Allergen Awareness - Save Lives
Help small business survive with Collaboration.
The current law is impossible to comply with for the caterer.
Changes must be made. It is the government's responsibility to provide tools that are workable - the government must play its part to assist enabling these 3 points:
- To vet and agree "a single source of truth" for all information on calories, fats, sugars, food miles and allergens for all ingredients to use an API and PDF's;
- Enforce manufacturers to help with API's. Government to agree upon one database to make it safer for people with all types of allergens to eat out;
- One government department owning the "single source of truth" who would manage and maintain the database after initial build and remain the single point of contact and authority
