Welcome to Allergen Awareness

On 13 December 2014, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) in conjunction with DEFRA introduced new allergen labelling laws.

The most important change is that you will need to supply information about any food that you offer which contains one or more of the top 14 allergens.

There are 1.92 million reasons why you should boost your awareness of allergens.

That’s how many people have a food allergy in the UK. And any one of them could be your customer.

When you work in the hospitality sector, you know how important it is to keep your customers happy. For people with food allergies, making choices about what to eat hasn’t always been easy.

Up to date training on allergen awareness will mean fewer mistakes and a better experience for every customer.

Now that it’s a legal requirement, make sure your team have exactly what they need with our expert training.
