This training programme covers the basics of food allergen awareness. It will teach learners about the foods that commonly trigger allergic reactions and the vital information that needs to be communicated to consumers.
This course also covers the legal responsibilities of allergen labelling and allergen declaration which will enable learners to comply with their duties under the EU General Food Law Regulation No.178/2002, the Food Information Regulations 2014 and the Food Safety Act 1990.
It will also ensure that your employees and business are aware of how to comply with the UK Food Information Amendment, also known as Natasha’s Law, which came into effect on 1 October 2021. This requires all businesses in England, Northern Ireland and Wales to provide full lists of ingredients and allergen labelling on foods prepacked for direct sale (PPDS) on the premises.
