Food Standards Scotland (FSS) has developed a new online training tool to improve awareness about food allergens in manufacturing and catering settings.

The tool, primarily intended for local authority authorised officers and those working in the food industry in Scotland, comprises six modules and covers:

  • legal requirements when selling food containing allergens 
  • physical reactions when people with allergies are exposed to allergens 
  • areas where allergens can impact in manufacturing and catering (factory) settings 
  • food labelling guidelines 
  • food composition 
  • providing consumers with allergen information
