It's essential that food handlers in retail and catering settings have an awareness of what food hypersensitivities and allergens are, how they can affect the safety of customers, and how food handlers should communicate the correct information to those who need to know.
This online Food Allergen Awareness course will teach you how to comply with the UK's allergen laws and help you understand which foods commonly cause reactions in food-hypersensitive customers. This course will explain how allergenic ingredients should be labelled on food products under the Food Information for Consumers (FIC) Regulation (as retained in UK law) and how to ensure customers receive accurate information about the food they consume.
