In December 2014 the Food Information Regulation came into force, which made it compulsory for food producers to label the 14 most common allergens in all foods they produce.

These allergens include:


  • Cereals
  • Crustaceans
  • Eggs
  • Fish
  • Peanuts
  • Soya
  • Milk
  • Nuts
  • Celery
  • Mustard
  • Sesame
  • Sulphur Dioxide
  • Lupin
  • Molluscs


You won’t find many of these in our preserves, but where they do occur they will be highlighted in bold in the list of product ingredients both on this website and on the label. Some of our preserves contain cereal products, for example we use barley malt vinegar in some of our chutneys, or sulphur dioxide, which is a common preservative used in dried fruit such as sultanas.

We have also put together a summary table for quick reference at a glance. If you are unsure please do get in touch for further advice.
