Event description: 


Examining the next steps for UK food labelling policy, this conference takes place in the context of uncertainty over the future for domestic food labelling policy post-Brexit.

The seminar will include a keynote address from Karen Lepper, Deputy Director, Access to Labour, Food Information and Standards at Defra.

Sessions will consider the future for UK food information regulation in relation to wider policy objectives - including the Obesity Plan and promoting healthier food choices, as well as increasing the UK food and drink industry’s international competitiveness and encouraging greater transparency on product origins, quality and animal welfare standards.

With Defra’s recently publishing its areas of interest for research - including on more effective labelling and consumer confidence in food - delegates will discuss the future of food labelling regulation in a changing food retail market, particularly focusing on the rise in popularity of online grocery shopping, the growth of third-party delivery services, and the position of the out-of-home food sector.
