The management of allergens in food, dairy and beverage processing operations remains a high priority with a renewed focus following the unfortunate events of the past couple of years and the planned extension of labelling regulations for ingredients to non-prepacked foods to be sold to the end consumer.
The Society of Food Hygiene & Technology has assembled a suite of experts in their field to address many of the practical concerns that are often encountered in food businesses when implementing allergen control plans.
Each of these presentations has a practical focus with a view on assisting with implementing effective controls that enhance consumer safety.
