Does your team need allergy training?

Are your staff fully prepared for Natasha’s Law 2021?

Allergen Awareness training is essential for all catering businesses and new allergen labeling laws and best practice examples- from Accredited businesses- are proof that training for staff on allergens is as paramount as food safety!

CaterCloud is partnering with Allergen Accreditation to provide fully accredited Allergen awareness training for catering staff and managers.

Rob Henry, CaterCloud’s Quality Assurance Manager explained why CaterCloud is promoting this fully accredited Allergen Awareness and Management training.

Rob said, “Catering operations need to ensure that their staff are fully prepared to deal with the increasing focus on consumer safety, the prevalence of food allergies and the introduction of Natasha’s Law in 2021.

“It is important to ensure legal compliance and to empower staff to be able to recommend dishes to food hypersensitive customers with confidence and thereby strengthen the service offering. CaterCloud has a shared interest in ensuring our customers are fully prepared for Natasha’s Law and with our network we are well placed to support the catering sector to enhance its overall allergen compliance.”
