Jersey food laws go out to public consultation

Jersey's Health Protection Department has invited opinions from islanders on new restrictions on the sale of food supplements and health claims.

The proposed legislation will introduce controls for nutritional labelling of all food and any health claims made through advertising.

Head of Health Protection Val Cameron said the rules were necessary "to ensure these products are safe".

Written comments can be submitted by members of the public until 18 January.
