Food Allergy Awareness Overview:
If you are seeking employment in an environment that serves food or you are preparing/cooking food, this course is a must! Its extremely important for all food and beverage staff to be aware of food allergies and the precautions to be taken.
When someone eats a food they are allergic to, even the tiniest amount, this can cause a very severe reaction called anaphylaxis. In the UK about ten people die every year from an allergic reaction to food and many more end up in hospital.
On the 13 December 2014, new legislation (the EU Food Information for Consumers Regulation 1169/2011) came into effect that requires food businesses to provide allergy information on food sold unpackaged, in for example catering outlets, deli counters, bakeries and sandwich bars, and also require staff at restaurants, cocktail bars or any establishment serving food and drink. If you are seeking employment in an environment that serves food or you are preparing food, this course is a must!
