Food Allergy Awareness Training

The aim of this Training course is to raise understanding of the impact for those consumers who are allergic to a particular food or ingredient and how to ensure consumers are well informed about their food choices.

This Food Allergy Awareness Training course is designed to help learners identify the fourteen particular food allergens which must, by law, be recognised and to understand why foods containing allergens must be handled carefully.

Who is this course for?

This Training course is for anyone who owns, manages or works in a food-related business as they need to make sure their operations are compliant with EU Food Information for Consumers Regulation No.1169/2011 / Food Information for Consumers Regulation (FIC) and Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) No. 78 / 2014 amending Annex II to Regulation (EU) No 1169 / 2011.

The Food Allergy Awareness Training Course is therefore suitable for food handlers, as well as those with a role that involves contact with food, or managing workers who do.

Why take this course?

By the end of the course, learners will:

  • Understand what both a food allergy and intolerance are
  • Learn to recognise the symptoms of an allergic reaction
  • Know which ingredients could cause allergies
  • Understand what allergy information is required on pre-packed food labels
  • Understand what to consider to keep consumers safe
  • Know how to provide allergen information specific to their food business
