This conference will look at priorities for policy and industry practice in the UK in the context of key developments affecting food labelling – including the Tackling Obesity strategy.
We are pleased to be able to include keynote contributions from senior speakers including Sarah Cunningham, Head of Food Labelling, Defra; Jim Cathcart, Policy Director, UKHospitality; and a senior speaker from the Food Standards Agency.
Delegates will consider what is needed to prepare the hospitality industry for the introduction of calorie labelling as part of the Government’s drive to tackle obesity, as well as the forthcoming implementation of Natasha’s Law and wider issues for food safety.
Further areas for discussion include:
- the role of labelling in food safety and standards
- dovetailing with wider public health, animal welfare, and environmental goals
- the future outlook for food labelling across the supply chain
- priorities for trade in the future and independent geographical indications schemes
Our forums are known for attracting strong interest from policymakers and stakeholders. Places have been reserved by parliamentary pass-holders from the House of Commons, and officials from CAFRE; DAERA, NI; Defra; Department for International Trade; Department of Health and Social Care; and the Welsh Government.
