Updated Guidance on Food Labelling Challenges Caused by the Crisis in Ukraine

Wednesday, 06 July 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 ongoing crisis in Ukraine and the sanctions on Russia and Belarus, the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) is aware that food business operators (FBOs) are continuing to experience difficulties regarding the supply of some foods, in particular, sunflower oil. This may result in food business operators having to omit or substitute certain ingredients or change the manufacturing process or recipe, at short notice.
