Course Overview and Benefits
Eating out can be dangerous for allergy sufferers as statistics by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) suggest that 7 out of 10 reactions happen when eating out and 1 in 5 allergic reactions for children occur in schools. It is therefore no surprise that research by the Food Standards Agency and Allergy UK suggest 53% of allergy sufferers avoid eating out because they do not trust the information they are given. This situation has improved with a legal requirement, under the Food Information Regulations 2014, for food businesses to declare 14 allergenic ingredients in both prepacked and non-prepacked food and drink. This information must be accurate and consistent, and can be communicated to the consumer either written, verbally or both.
This 5 hour accredited course is ideal for anyone who prepares, serves or sells food in any type of food business. Candidates on this course will gain essential knowledge on how to comply with current food safety legislation and how to identify and control allergenic hazards.
