Getting food allergen information right first time is vital as it is a food safety issue. This half day online course covers allergen labelling of prepacked food, NEW requirements for prepacked for direct sale products (Natasha’s law), communication of allergen information for food sold loose (e.g. in catering establishments or delicatessens), free-from allergen foods and precautionary allergen labelling (PAL).
Legislation concerning the provision of food allergen information continues to develop, as regulators react to advances in the understanding of prevalence and high profile incidents. The legal, social and reputational responsibility of the food industry remains to provide food that is safe for those with food allergy, and communication of allergen information to consumers is of vital importance. The course is designed to provide delegates with essential understanding of the EU harmonised and UK legal requirements on provision of allergen information. Where specific legislative obligations are not defined, the course imparts crucial knowledge of best practice.
This course does not cover management, risk assessment or analysis of allergens; just the legal requirements and best practice relating to provision of food allergen information.
