A food allergy results in a person having an atypical response to a particular food. To avoid individuals suffering from these responses, it is essential for all those responsible for the purchase, delivery, production and serving of food in the catering industry to have an excellent knowledge of allergens and their control.

Equally essential for the food handlers, is to have a basic understanding of nutrition and the requirements of special diets to enable the planning and provision of well-balanced meals that will have a positive impact on health.

Our UK regulated allergens qualifications are supported by Allergy UK.
