Artisan and small scale food producers face big hurdles dealing with the law, which is complex and ever changing and carries big bills when you get it wrong. What may seem reasonable for industrial and commodity food producers becomes a heavy and unreasonable burden for the small scale food producer.

This is where Artisan Food Law comes in to provide support and help navigate a way through the minefield.

Artisan Food Law looks at the law through the eyes of artisan and small scale food producers, helps to redress the balance and act as an advocate for those working with integrity and respect for what nature provides and whose knowledge and skill combine to produce great food.

"I can highly recommend Artisan Food Law, it’s a hugely useful and expert information resource on the law affecting artisan and small scale food producers."

Food labels have changed

The milestone for many food producers this month is not Christmas, but 13 December – food labelling day when the food information to consumers (FIC) Regulation (EU) 1169/2011 comes into effect. It’s worth remembering what it’s all about: protecting health and providing information, that’s the stated aim of the FIC, as it appears now to be more affectionately known.

The long awaited new labelling regime seems to be the source of widespread confusion and consternation among food producers and retailers, not to mention restaurants coping with allergen labelling, or at least it is if you believe the trade press. The presence of allergens in food has dominated media coverage, an important change but let’s not overlook the rest.
