Seminars on the New Allergen & Labelling Regulations for members of the

Craft Bakers’ Association will be delivered by David Leeds of Campden BRI.

Our members will be pleased to know that we will be putting on five

seminars on the new labelling laws across the country as follows:

• 19 March 2014 at Greenhalgh’s in Bolton

• 4 June at The Holiday Inn, Kings Cross, London

• 25 June at the Hallmark Hotel, Derby

• 2 July at the Novotel Victoria Street, Bristol

• 9 July at the Marriott Hotel, Huntingdon

The seminars are all-day (9.30am to 3.30pm), with all the key issues being covered: introduction to the Food Information Regulation (FIR); allergen labelling, nutrition labelling; specific mandatory particulars – names, ingredients lists, net quantity and durability indications; general rules for mandatory particulars; country-of-origin labelling; voluntary information, national measures, non-prepacked foods; consultations on legislation to execute and enforce the FIR in UK countries; plus three practical exercises.

The cost to our members is £55. A very generous donation from the CBA

Education Fund has enabled us to keep the cost down.

The new laws will affect every member.
