From 19th August, M&S will begin the implementation of the FIR. Over an 18 month period all suppliers will therefore be required to update and submit all FIND specifications for every food product.


All suppliers are invited to attend a webinar for the M&S Guide to the FIR. These live online learning events will be delivered by Peter Wight on the following dates:
· 12th June 2013 10am – 12pm

· 26th June 2013 10am – 12pm
These sessions will include an overview of the changes to the M&S Guidelines, and will also provide a live Q&A for suppliers to ask about FIR guidelines and implementation.
Registration for these free sessions will be co-ordinated by Ashbury Training. Please e-mail to request a registration link for your preferred date.
For anyone unable to attend these dates, a recorded presentation is available here:
