A bill known as “Natasha’s Law” has been introduced by Michael Gove, which is set to protect allergy sufferers after the death of a teenager almost three years ago.
The legislation will require all food businesses to clearly label the full ingredients of pre-packaged food.
It is set to come into force by summer 2021.
Natasha Ednan-Laperouse from Fulham in London died after suffering a severe reaction on a flight between London and Nice in 2016.
She unknowingly ate sesame, which she was allergic to, in an artichoke, olive and tapenade sandwich from Pret a Manger at Heathrow Airport.
