About This Course

20% of adults in the UK suffer from at least one allergy. That’s roughly 2 million people who could be at risk from an allergic reaction. If you work in the production, cooking or serving of food, it is your responsibility to ensure that no allergens are found in the food given to an allergy sufferer. You never know when one of those 2 million may walk through your door, which is why it’s imperative that you have an awareness of allergens and know how to responsibly provide food for those with allergies, in order to avoid potentially life-threatening consequences. Allergen Awareness explores food preparation, production, handling and more to give you a comprehensive overview of allergen awareness and food safety. 
 

Who is this course for?
Allergen Awareness is a food safety training course aimed at anyone working, or aspiring to work, in a catering setting. This includes people involved in the production, preparation, cooking, handling, transportation, serving or selling of food. As a food and drink provider, an understanding of food allergies and safety is crucial to keeping your customers’ lives out of potential danger.  
 

What will you get from this course?
Upon course completion, you will understand the importance of recognising allergies in food and the affects that allergens can have on people who are allergic or intolerant to them. You will know how to safely handle, process and prepare food and drink in order to comply with health and safety legislations and avoid allergen-related sickness.
