About Food Allergen Training

Food allergens are substances that trigger an allergic reaction in those that are hypersensitive to them. Understanding food allergens, how to handle and how to label them is critical for those who work with them.

Food allergies can be lethal. It’s estimated that around 5% of people are affected by food allergies. They can develop when you are young, or as an adult. It is a legal requirement that people are provided with clear information about the possible allergens in their food.

A new law was enacted in 2021, called Natasha’s law. This creates certain requirements to warn customers purchasing food about potential allergens. Failure to comply with this law will result in prosecution for workers and organisations.

This food allergen training course is for those who handle food products in any capacity. It provides valuable guidelines and information needed to comply with the law.

Why Is Food Allergen Training Important?

Employers have a legal duty to provide food allergy training to all food handlers regardless of their job role.

An estimated 2 million people have been diagnosed with a food allergy in the UK, and 600,000 with coeliac auto-immune disorder. So, it’s vital that allergen information is readily available for those buying food.

Everyone needs to know what’s in their food, and no more so than allergy sufferers. By receiving food allergens training, food can be labelled properly by those that provide it.
