Food allergen communication and labelling - live online, tutor-led training course
Benefits of attending
This interactive online module has been developed to provide participants with an essential understanding of the EU harmonised and UK legal requirements on provision of allergen information. Where specific legislative obligations are not defined, the course imparts crucial knowledge of best practice. The module covers allergen labelling of prepacked food, requirements for prepacked for direct sale products (Natasha’s law), communication of allergen information for food sold loose (e.g. in catering establishments or delicatessens), free-from allergen foods and precautionary allergen labelling (PAL), including an introduction to quantitative risk assessment (i.e. the use of ‘thresholds’ as part of the decision whether to apply PAL).
The legislative requirements and best practice guidance around provision of food allergen information to consumers will be delivered through tutored sessions, discussions, and practical exercises during the module.
This module is aimed at employees involved in specification functions or approving artwork, technical managers who have responsibility for labelling functions, those involved with overseeing provision of allergen information for loose food e.g. catering or delicatessen or food prepacked for direct sale.
The module will be delivered live online over the course of a morning (0900 - 1230 hours), participants will be sent log in details for a Microsoft Teams session.
