WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO INFORM CUSTOMERS

The main objective of EU Regulation 1169/2011 on food information to consumers is to guarantee citizens the right to more in-depth information on food content by introducing a list of substances considered allergenic.
ALLERGENS are ingredients or substances which, if ingested, can lead to allergies and/or intolerances in consumers.

These substances must be declared on the label if they are present in a food product. As of 13 December 2014, food that is administered and/or sold for take-away is also subject to the obligation to indicate the allergens it contains. The obligation is imposed by EU Regulation No. 1169 of 2011 (Art. 9: List of mandatory particulars - 21: Labelling of certain substances or products causing allergies or intolerances - 44: National provisions for non-prepacked foods - Annex II: Substances and products causing allergies), and concerns, in addition to administered products, all foods offered for sale to the final consumer without pre-packaging or pre-wrapped at the moment of sale at the consumer's request.

As of 13 December 2014, the shopkeeper is obliged to inform the consumer about the presence or absence of the so-called allergens highlighted in Annex II of EU Reg No. 1169/2011 et seq. The list of allergens is periodically updated in the light of the latest scientific knowledge.
