Allergen/Product Labelling

As we all know allergic reactions can be life threatening and must be taken very seriously by those working in the catering industry. The most common dietary cause of severe reactions are peanuts, tree nuts (e.g. walnut, almond, hazelnut, brazil, pistachio, cashew, macadamia and pecan) egg and shellfish. Remember though –  ANY food has the potential to cause a severe reaction – not just nuts.

In December 2014, new regulations came into place known as the European Food Information to Consumers Regulation No 1169/2011 (FIC)

These regulations are a legal requirement and caterers must ensure that information on all of the top 14 allergens is available to customers with a food allergy – this is where we come in.

We offer guidance on product labelling also making sure you comply with all mandatory requirements.

We are here to answer your questions and support you in any way we can – we have worked with a range of catering providers to help them conform to this legislation with the minimum amount of fuss!
