Fire risk assessments

A Fire Risk Assessment is a legal requirement for any business on the UK, A Fire Risk Assessment should be completed every 2 years by a competent person. Often this is done by the same people who provide your fire services at an additional cost, This could lead to you buying services and equipment that you do not need.

Nutrition and Health Claims

From superfood, detox, energiser vitamin boost, lean, skinny, gym aid to immunity enhancer, healthy bones and cholesterol reduction.
We can help you to market the nutritional and health benefits of your food within the law as the EU health food claims law begins to bite!

Health claims about nutrition are nothing new: an apple a day keeps the doctor away, eating carrots helps you see in the dark. However, write that on a bag of carrots these days and your local trading standards officer may instruct you to remove the words or even take you to court as the claim relating to vitamin A and night vision was not appropriately proven. That’s because health claims for nutrients in food and supplements are subject to strict EU regulations under guidelines decreed by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). This began a decade ago, then some beefed-up rules came into play in 2012. The objective was ‘to ensure that any claim made on a food’s labelling, presentation or advertising in the European Union is clear, accurate and based on scientific evidence’.
This protects the consumer and ‘promotes innovation and ensure fair competition’.
The rules apply whether the claims originate from the product label, your website or are written on the blackboard of your local juice bar or café.
