In light of the worrying developments in discussions with Defra and the Food Standards Agency, on 25 May 2022, the Real Bread Campaign wrote to two more agencies involved in food labelling and marketing regulation.

Having outlined the Campaign’s Honest Crust Act proposals, including evidence of need and benefit, our key questions were: 

Chartered Trading Standards Institute: Do you believe that the proposed regulation would assist trading standards officers in pursuing complaints and preventing shoppers from being misled?

Food Standards Scotland: Can shoppers and bakers in Scotland count on FSS’s support in making this a reality?

Updates

4 July 2022: The Chartered Trading Standards Institute echoed the Real Bread Campaign’s call for improved loaf labelling and marketing legislation.
