Food businesses must be aware of the 14 specific food allergens you handle and ensure that you can track their use in various products destined for caterers or the final consumer. The written allergen information must be easily accessible to your customers without assistance from staff and must be clear about which food items contain which food allergens.
Five steps to help you comply with the law:
1: Declare the use of the 14 food allergens in writing
2: Ensure the allergen information is legible and clear
3: Ensure the allergen information is easily accessible to your customers
4: Ensure the allergen information is up-to-date
5: Monitor your suppliers’ allergen information
