Over 750 Novel Food Applications Submitted To FSA – But Only 200-Plus Currently Moving Forward
May 06th, 2021
NERVOUS times for many in the CBD industry this evening as the UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) has released numbers to BusinessCann on Novel Food applications.
Yesterday (March 31), was the deadline for applicants to file Novel Food submissions to the FSA – following some earlier delays; see here.
The FSA this evening confirmed that it has received over 750 CBD applications – predominantly from bulk ingredient suppliers – since January 1, this year.
It went on to say that over 200 applications are currently undergoing Administration, and or Validation checks and that two have passed Validation – one of these is synthetic CBD firm Pureis CBD, as reported earlier.
