About this Allergen Awareness Training Course

By law, food handlers must be able to identify the 14 food allergens and understand why foods containing allergens must be handled carefully. Our Allergen training course teaches learners the difference between a food allergy and intolerance, allergic reactions and symptoms, the 14 allergens and products which contain them. It covers the responsibilities of the operator, what information should be on pre-packed food labels, and what you need to consider to keep customers safe.

This Allergen course is aimed at food handlers or anyone that works with food, whether it’s food production, packaging, distribution, processing, food retail or catering.

Currently, there are no known cures for food allergies and intolerances, and some cases can prove life-threatening. Ensuring your employees are trained can protect not only your company legally but also your customers medically.
