Brexit, weeks after the vote it's still on everyone's minds. What does X, Y and Z mean for the British public now? One thing people have neglected to mention in the Brexit debate is something many of us take for granted, Food labels.
Almost Everything Has An E Number
E numbers are a great way of identifying what's in our food. An E-Number is an additive that is deemed fit for consumption by the EU. These cover a wide variety of additives such as flavourings, colourings or preservatives.
Bacon might have added E249 to prevent bacteria from growing and keep it safe to eat for longer. No matter which side of the fence you sit on for the Brexit debate. It's safe to say, that an easy to understand system for ensuring food quality standards are met is a good beneficial system to have.
So What Will Happen Now?
Well in short, nobody knows. Nobody knows exactly which way the nation will move. This is the unknown future that terrified Remainers and excited Brexiteers. Nobody knows which direction our country will move. Will we rise out of Europe as a world leader, will our economy crash, will nothing happen, or will we do 'just fine', nobody really knows and all speculation is simply that, speculation.
Some predict a full Brexit, others predict Brexit lite, and some people predict that the UK will remain in the period of “leaving the EU" like how some countries realise that they have been technically at war for a period of years but neither nation acted upon it.
It is safe to say that many of the EU laws and regulations will remain in effect. Food regulations could possibly be one of the EU laws that get transferred into British Law.
Brexit Means Brexit
With the new Prime Minister Theresa May saying those famous words it's very clear that the UK is going on a new path, now it's up to the Department for Exiting the European Union and its Secretary Rt Hon David Davis MP to decide how we leave the EU and what happens next.
We could speculate about how potential moves by the government would affect the food labelling industry, but it would be safe to assume that whatever movement goes forward, from the labelling perspective, regardless of what food regulation service is used; ingredients like peanuts, gluten and lactose which people can have harmful allergic reactions to will very likely be disclosed.
No matter what changes (or does not change) within food standard regulation, it's likely that food labelling will have to keep up with the regulations and serve as a point of information for the consumer.
