EU Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 on the provision of food information to consumers requires that all pre-packaged loaves display a full ingredient list. The exemption of loaves sold at the point of production is made in the interests of reducing unnecessary regulatory burden on small businesses and bakeries while retaining essential relevant information for the consumer.

The EU withdrawal Bill will bring existing provisions on to a UK legal basis.
