The aim of this Food Allergy Awareness 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 There is no known cure for a food allergy and consumers have to avoid the food or ingredient to prevent reactions to the allergenic food. For some only a trace of the allergenic food may be needed, symptoms can range from mild to serious and for some consumers can be life threatening.

This training will explore the practical things which need to be considered to keep consumers safe.
