Food Allergen Training
Who should attend...
The new Food Information Regulations (FIR), enforceable from 13th December 2014, require Caterers to provide information on the 14 main food allergens in their dishes. Businesses must ensure their food safety controls encompass the new requirements and that they control food allergens from purchase through to service.
It is important that all those involved, chefs, catering staff and front of house staff etc, understand the risks posed by food allergies and are able to provide accurate and up-to-date information about ingredients in the foods on sale to customers who ask. It will not be enough for caterers to say they do not know whether a particular food contains any of the relevant allergens.
If you prepare, serve or sell food to others and you need some help in understanding your legal responsibilities regarding the new Regulations and how to protect your customers as well as your business, then this course will be ideal for you and your staff.
This popular half day session provides up to date information on the FIR 2014 requirements for Caterers, along with simple practical advice on compliance.
