It is important to manage allergens effectively in your food business to ensure food is safe for customers with food allergies. This involves including allergen information when menu planning and having good food preparation and hygiene practices in place to avoid cross-contamination in your kitchen.
This one-day Allergen Management course will ensure that you are fully aware of common allergens and intolerances. You will learn how to manage food ingredients and allergens effectively. In addition, you will understand the importance of accurate communication of ingredient information, from supplier to consumer.
The course is aimed at individuals responsible for the purchase, delivery, production and serving of food in the catering industry and is also suitable for those who own/manage a small catering business.
The course also includes details of The UK Food Information Amendment, also known as Natasha’s Law, which comes into effect from October 2021.
This new legislation requires all food businesses to provide full ingredient lists and allergen labelling on foods prepackaged for direct sale on the premises. The legislation is being introduced to protect allergy sufferers and give them confidence in the food they buy.
