Our training course will give you an understanding of food allergens and how they affect ‘at-risk’ consumers, how to inform customers about allergens in the food and your role in allergen management. For business owners, we focus on the new EU Food Allergen Regulation (EC) 1160, how it applies to your business, and how to comply with the regulation.
Food allergy and intolerance are growing health concerns. Anyone who prepares serves or sells food in any food business needs to be fully aware of the controls to ensure that customers are safe. From December 2011, new EU food labelling rules make it mandatory to declare the use of specified allergens in loose and prepacked foods. It is important that all food handling workers are trained in food allergen awareness.
