Farming insects

In a new study, researchers from the University of Leeds and University of Veracruz in Mexico have reviewed current insect farming methods, processing technologies and commercialisation techniques, as well as current perceptions towards entomophagy – the practice of eating insects[3].

Food chain review

The findings of an independent review that will consider the food chain from field to fork will be used to develop a National Food Strategy for England[2].

This independent review will look at the entire food chain, from field to fork, including production, marketing, processing, sale and purchase of food (for consumption in the home and out of it). It will also look at the consumer practices, resources and institutions involved in these processes.

Allergen labelling

The Government has announced plans to introduce a new allergen labelling law to help further protect the UK’s two million people living with food allergy[1].

The new legislation will mandate full ingredients labelling for foods which are prepacked for direct sale. These are foods that have been made and packed on the same premises from which they are being sold. For example, a packaged sandwich or salad made by staff earlier in the day and placed on a shelf for purchase.
