Guest of Honour: Stephen Pugh, Head of Food Labelling, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs This seminar will provide a timely opportunity to discuss the next steps for food labelling policy in the UK. With new EU food information regulation due to apply from December 2014, delegates will discuss the challenges for its implementation, with particular attention to nutrition information on processed foods, origin labelling, allergen labelling and legibility. The agenda will also bring out the latest thinking on how food labelling can help improve public health, providing delegates with an opportunity to assess how successful front-of-pack nutritional labelling has been in helping consumers choose healthier options and encouraging industry to provide healthier choices - one year on from its introduction. Sessions will bring together key policymakers from Parliament and Whitehall with stakeholders with an interest in this area - including public health professionals, representatives of the food and drink industry, including manufacturers, retailers, and suppliers, local government officials, representatives of the labelling and packaging industries, academia, charities and consumer groups. We are delighted to be able to include in this seminar a keynote address from Stephen Pugh, Head of Food Labelling, Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs. Further confirmed speakers include: Su Dakin, Technical Manager, British Frozen Food Federation; Phil Dalton, Head of Regulatory, Legal Impackt; Sukh Gill, Head of Global Regulatory Services, Leatherhead Food Research; Helen Gillen, Food Law, Labelling and Enforcement Manager, Food and Drink Federation; Dr David Jukes, Senior Lecturer in Food Regulation, University of Reading; Andrea Martinez-Inchausti, Deputy Director for Food, British Retail Consortium and David Pickering, Team Leader, Trading Standards, Buckinghamshire County Council, together with a senior speaker confirmed from Kantar World Panel. Lord Dykes, Treasurer, Food and Drink Manufacturing All-Party Parliamentary Group has kindly agreed to chair part of this seminar.
