About this Course

In this course you will learn to identify the fourteen major food allergens and implement measures to control them in order to fulfil legal requirements.

Currently, there are no known cures for food allergies and intolerances. Those who suffer from allergies have to avoid certain foods and ingredients to prevent reactions, which in some cases can be life-threatening. That is why it should be easy for people with food allergies to find out which products contain the ingredients they are allergic to. Therefore, everyone working in the food industry should undergo food allergy training.

This course is essential for anyone who owns, manages or works in a food-related business. It is ‘Allergy UK’ accredited and meets the entry requirements for Allergy UK’s Allergy Aware Scheme. It is also useful for individuals suffering from food allergies who want to learn how to keep themselves safe.

Did you know: Allergic diseases are affecting the lives of more than one billion people worldwide. Considering the rise during the last 60 years, this number is expected to reach up to 4 billion in 2050.
