FOOD SAFETY REGULATIONS IN THE UK

The United Kingdom left the EU on January 31, 2020, entering a transition period. The transition period ended on December 31, 2020, so from January 1, 2021, new rules affecting aspects like exporting products from the UK, importing goods into the UK, and food labeling were introduced.

From January 1, irrespective of the agreement signed on December 24 with the EU that will come into effect on 01/01/2021, the UK will no longer be part of the single market and will leave the EU customs union along with all EU policies and international agreements. The free movement of people, goods, services, and capital between the UK and the European Union will cease.
