This Allergy UK accredited online training covers the information all food handlers must know to serve safe food.

Food allergies and intolerances are at the top of many food businesses watch lists, and yet it seems the latest high-profile allergen cases are never far from news headlines. It is important that anyone working in the food industry is aware of allergens and the steps that should be taken to effectively manage and control the risk of allergens.
