Due to high demand, we are delighted to announce a new Allergens workshop this year.
Following several high-profile fatal allergen incidents at catering and takeaway food establishments, there are lessons to be learned about food allergen management and a need for more stringent regulations. This workshop will examine current issues, with coverage of the updates that the Food Standards Authority (FSA) has issued for technical guidance on food labelling and commentary from an expert witness from two manslaughter cases.
This day is both instructional and interactive, incorporating factual presentations and collaborative workshops. The workshop is suitable for practitioners from industry and enforcement and delegates will be updated with the latest views from both the FSA and the courts.
Hear an in-depth overview of the current law and guidance on allergens and receive an update on the FSA’s March 2019 consultation and recommendations
Learn how to undertake an allergen risk assessment in practice and the accountability of precautionary statements such as ‘may contain’
Understand what good allergen management looks like in catering and small manufacturing businesses, including practical solutions from ordering to service
