How to comply with the Food Information Regulations (FIR) 2014
December 2014 is when the Regulations (FIR) came into force - it's all about having allergen controls in the business and the communication of allergen information to consumers.
We can provide businesses with our popular half day Food Allergen training session, to help you and your staff understand how to comply with the FIR Regulations.
We love learning and helping others to improve workplace standards in Food Safety and Health & Safety. We have worked in the Food Industry and in Local Authority Enforcement and understand the real difficulties faced by businesses, especially in the current climate.
We stand for value for money, quality and fun and have a sense of reality and an eye for detail. We strive to achieve this by constantly improving the content of our courses, delivery methods and presentation skills through regular research, feedback and evaluation. You can be assured that when we carry out an audit for you we will tell you as it is and work with you to improve any areas requiring attention.
We are passionate about Food Safety and Health & Safety. We aim to be the most helpful, professional and proactive to each of our valued customers. Our primary goal is to support our clients to remain safe and legal. You ask and we’ll deliver.

He has a first class honours degree in Industrial Food Technology and is passionate about continued learning and the importance of having high standards of safety.

Maintaining high standards of training, support and customer care is core to Kings Safety values.
