Useful guide to Irish food law

Ireland has a long tradition of food production and an ever-increasing reputation for top quality food products. Food production and distribution is, however, a highly regulated industry and it can be difficult for small food producers to navigate the law in this area.

FSAI guide to food law

The Food Safety Authority of Ireland has published a guide on food law for producers starting a new business. It’s a good starting point, dealing with the general law and specific areas lie microbiology, labelling and additives. It is a high-level guide but references further materials available for download on the FSAI website (eg. guidance notes on the definition of “meat” and product recalls) and also their vast compendium of food law.

The guide is available here and should prove useful to food entrepeneurs and existing small producers.


Hello. #westlimerick #glenastar

West Limerick hills on a Summer evening. #nofilter

If ever passing through Newcastle West, stop for a stroll around the Castle grounds. Lovely on a day like today.
