The Food Safety Authority of Ireland has developed information that must be provided to consumers by food businesses promoting or selling food online via websites or social media. 

This guidance specifies what a business must do to comply with the law to ensure that consumers get the same information online, before making a purchase, as they would if they bought the product in a store. 

Specifically, this highlights the following details: 

  • Registering your food business 
  • Provision of food information to consumers 
  • Displaying mandatory food information 
  • Making claims about food 
  • Temperature control 
  • Traceability 
  • Product recall 
  • Notifying food supplements to the FSAI 
  • Consumer protection law 

The guidance document was released on July 20, 2017.
