Allergen Accreditation launches Allergen Aware Month

Surrey-based consultancy, Allergen Accreditation has just launched Allergen Aware Month to highlight the importance of staying allergen aware for all businesses providing food and beverages.

Allergen Aware Month is a pledge from all types of food and beverage businesses to reboot their allergen awareness, remind staff to be compliant with the law, refresh their training and generally get all employees re-focussed and alert to this essential aspect of working in catering and hospitality.

Allergen Accreditation have prepared some useful resources to support businesses. This year's resource pack contains:
