Who will this consultation be of most interest to?
Food business operators in Northern Ireland importing, selling and manufacturing flour and products containing flour.
Currently millers in Northern Ireland cannot sell unfortified flour onto the Northern Ireland market. We are proposing to allow flour millers to place unfortified flour on the Northern Ireland market, subject to it being destined for countries outside the UK, or used in products destined to be sold outside of the UK, subject to responses to this consultation.
Purpose of the consultation
To seek comments from industry, enforcement authorities, consumers and other interested stakeholders on if there is merit and demand for millers to sell unfortified flour onto the Northern Ireland market subject to it being destined for countries outside the UK, or used in products destined to be sold outside the UK.
We would also welcome additional information about relevant trade and the likely impacts of the proposed changes for this sector.
