Guidance on Food Labelling Challenges Caused by the Crisis in Ukraine

Saturday, 26 March 2022

The purpose of this guidance is to support a consistent approach to the labelling of foods, in the short term, where ingredients must be substituted due to supply issues

Due to the current crisis in Ukraine and the sanctions on Russia and Belarus, the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) is aware that food business operators (FBOs) in Ireland, may be experiencing difficulties regarding the supply of some foods, in particular, sunflower oil, but also other raw materials and ingredients used for the production of certain foods. This may result in food business operators having to omit or substitute certain ingredients or change the manufacturing process or recipe, at short notice.
