Food Allergens Training Courses.

Every year we see 4,500 hospital admissions and 10 deaths from food allergy. New allergen information rules are here to change the way you get information on 14 allergens, if included in the food you buy.

 

Food allergy and intolerance are growing health concerns in the UK. They are life changing and in serious cases can be fatal, or lead to long-term health conditions.

From 13 December 2014, a new piece of European legislation, called the Food Information for Consumers Regulation (EU FIC) means allergen information must be provided in a clearer and more consistent way on prepacked and loose food, making it easier for you to make safer choices when buying food or eating out.

 

We have two training courses to make it as easy as possible for you and your team to understand and comply with the new law:

Level 2 Award in Food Allergen Awareness and Control in Catering (RQF)

Under the Food Information Regulations 2014, food business operators have a legal responsibility to provide complete and correct food allergen information to customers. These regulations apply to all catering and retail businesses that serve or sell loose foods.
