‘Prepacked for direct sale’ is currently defined as those foods that have been packed on the same premises as they are being sold. Foods which could fall under this category are sandwiches/pies or cakes that are individually wrapped and sold prepackaged from the premises in which they were made.

Before Natasha’s law the display of an allergen summary sheet and/or a notice to enquire about allergenic ingredients from a member of staff was sufficient for the provision of allergen information for these items. However, by October 2021, if any of the schools individually wrap any items that can essentially be taken away and consumed at a point in time, where access to allergen information is not available, these items will then fall under the new rules.
