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.”
