The Food Standards Agency in England and Wales is no longer responsible for nutrition policy.
From 1 October 2010 responsibility for nutrition policy transferred from the Food Standards Agency to the Department of Health in England and to the Assembly Government in Wales.
These changes will mean that the health departments in these countries will be responsible for:
- nutritional labelling
- nutrition and health claims, dietetic food and food supplements
- calorie information in catering establishments
- reformulation to reduce salt, saturated fat and sugar levels in food and reducing portion size (including catering and manufacturing)
- nutrition advice, surveys and nutrition research
