Accredited Allergen training at Level 2 and Level 3
In the UK, food businesses must tell you if they use any of the 14 key allergens
as ingredients in the food and drink they provide.
Food businesses include restaurants, cafés and takeaways, and businesses that
produce, manufacture or pre-pack food.
The 14 allergens that they need to declare are:
- cereals containing gluten – including wheat, rye, barley and oats
- crustaceans – such as prawns, crabs and lobsters
- molluscs – such as mussels and oysters
- tree nuts – including almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, brazil nuts, cashews,
pecans, pistachios and macadamia nuts
- sesame seeds
- sulphur dioxide and sulphites (if they are at a concentration of more than
ten parts per million)
Our allergen training unpacks allergies in such a way that changes are easier
to put in place and system changes are based on analysis rather than a knee
jerk reaction to legislation or a complaint.
The training and assessment contribute to an altogether more compliant and
diligent approach to Food Safety
