Working with Allergens

Allergy Awareness training for food and drink service staff has been a legal obligation in the UK since December 2014 but there is still a lack of awareness in businesses of the implications of not carrying this out. Staff cannot say ‘they don’t know’ in response to a customer question and understand the danger of ‘bluffing’ an answer. A recent prosecution has taken place resulting in 6 year prison sentence of a restaurant owner and regular surveys still show that 70-80% of customers don’t trust staff to give the correct information.

Objectives

  • Identify 14 major allergens and foods that contain them
  • Identify key allergic reactions and the action you should take
  • Read allergy labels and use the information to record correctly
  • Identify how to declare allergens to customers
  • Use best practice methods to minimise cross contamination of allergens
  • State what information should be communicated to Food Service staff
