What is Natasha’s Law?
Following the tragic passing of Natasha Ednan-Laperouse, who suffered a fatal allergic reaction to a sandwich in 2016, Natasha’s family have been campaigning for greater transparency surrounding labelling requirements. From October 2021, the outcome of their campaigning will come into force under Natasha’s Law, a new food labelling legislation. The impending law will mean that businesses must label all foods pre-packed for direct sale with a full list of ingredients, including emphasised allergens, to consumers.
