Learn about our food allergens course

Food Allergen Training is designed to provide food handlers, and staff involved in the preparation and service of food in the hospitality industry, with knowledge and understanding of food allergens, food intolerance and food sensitivity.

It also covers the characteristics and effects of allergens and the importance of effectively communicating information regarding allergenic ingredients to customers, staff and others.

The course also explains changes to legislation affecting the provision of food allergen information and identifies how staff can minimise the risk of cross-contamination from allergic ingredients.

Food allergen training is important in any food business

Whether you are working in a kitchen, factory, restaurant or shop, it is vital to understand food allergens and how they can dangerously affect someone who has an allergy.

This training gives you the knowledge you need to ensure that you always keep foods safe from cross-contamination and ensure that you keep the end consumer informed as to what all foods contain.
