Who Is The Owner Of Byron Restaurant?
The owner Of Byron Restaurant is Simon Wilkinson. He Said
“We take allergies extremely seriously and have robust procedures in place and although those procedures were in line with all the rules and guidelines, we train our staff to respond in the right way. It’s clear current rules and requirements are not enough and the industry needs to do more – more to help customers with allergies and more to raise awareness of the risks of allergies.”
The Law on Labels for Food Allergies
Food suppliers need to warn individuals to 14 allergens, including nuts, milk, and eggs. Pre-packed food must have a list of ingredients and allergens must be emphasized in some manner whenever they appear under “Natasha’s Law,” which is due to come into force on 1 October 2020.
For unpackaged food, such as that sold in a restaurant, information must be provided for each item containing any of the 14 allergens.
According to the Food Standards Agency, this could be either on a menu, chalkboard or data kit or through a written notice such as the above sign explaining how clients can find out more, for instance by requesting a staff member for details
The law of Natasha
After the murder of 15-year-old Natasha Ednan-Laperouse, former Environment Secretary Michael Gove pledged a new law to protect allergy sufferers.
Food companies will have to include complete ingredient labeling on pre-packaged food under “Natasha’s law.”
Natasha was severely allergic to sesame seeds that were not mentioned in the artichoke, lemon and garlic products.

Speaking outside the court of Southwark Coroner, sister Emma Kocher of Mr. Carey said that the death of her brother should not have occurred.
But Carey’s family said that:
“leaves far too much room for error. We hope that we can bring about change with Owen’s Law for better allergen labeling in restaurants.”
They want it to be written on the menu next to each item containing an allergen.
