Allergy awareness in focus
Recent high profile mistakes in food labelling have brought into sharp focus exactly how dangerous it can be to be complacent about allergies, allergens and your legal duty to provide customers with information. Compliance isn’t just about ticking the box marked ’14 allergens’. It requires a comprehensive strategy and commitment throughout your supply chain, from raw ingredients suppliers to the consumer. This week’s podcast will explore the changes in food information regulation and the practicalities of compliance in order to improve allergy awareness.
Joining host Stefan Gates by phone are Liz Tucker, AfN Registered Nutritionist & Food & Drink Industry Advisor, and Nicola Smith, Director, Squire Patton Boggs (UK) LLP, who will discuss what regulations are changing, what steps retailers have taken to increase the prominence of allergen information, and what companies need to consider in light of proposed regulatory changes to improve allergy awareness.
