CPD - Food Allergy Awareness Training

All staff handling food should have a thorough understanding of allergens and the potential dangers surrounding them. Our course is IOSH approved and CPD accredited for your total reassurance.

This Food Allergen Training programme has been written for people who work with food; whether it’s food productionprocessingpackagingdistributionfood retail or catering.

Anyone who works with food needs to know about allergens and allergen labelling. They particularly need to be aware of the changes to the rules which were introduced in December 2014. In the UK it’s estimated that 2 million people have an allergy to foods, and over the last 15 years hospital admissions for food allergies have increased by 500%.

As there is no cure for food allergies, they must be managed and the only way to do this is to avoid the foods which cause the allergy. It is therefore important that people with food allergies can easily find out which products contain the ingredients they are allergic to. In order to comply with the new EU FIC Regulations, everyone working in the food industry is required to understand how to make this information readily available to consumers should they need to know.

Our Food Allergy Awareness training course is the perfect online course for anyone working with food – It’s engagingcost-effective and it only takes 35 minutes to complete!
