The Agency is publicising the product ranges to encourage the food industry to participate in the voluntary ban. The voluntary ban was agreed by Ministers in November 2008.
Consumers who are particularly concerned about the presence of the colours should continue to check labels, especially in the case of products with a long shelf-life, where the availability of reformulated products may vary.
Any food manufacturer, retailer or caterer wishing to notify the Agency that their brands or products are free of these colours should email the details to Benedict Duncan, at:firstname.lastname@example.org
The Agency’s website will be updated regularly as new information is provided.
