The Importance of Allergen Awareness

Every three minutes, a food allergy reaction sends someone to the emergency room.

These sorts of statistics highlight how important it is that people working within the foodservice industry are trained in Allergen Awareness. Every establishment should be able to deal with an allergy sufferer from the moment they walk into the restaurant until they leave the premise.

Although there are no mandatory requirements in the state of Florida in relation to Allergen Awareness, the training is definitely recommended to anyone working with food on a regular basis.

Always Food Safe’s ANSI accredited training is perfect for anyone working within this industry. The training will provide the essentials of food allergies and then explain how to utilize policies and procedures to make sure all customers can eat safely in your foodservice establishment.
