Our Food Allergy Awareness course has been updated to include everything you need to know and comply with Natasha's Law PPDS regulations. Natasha's Law came into effect on 1st October 2021, the training also includes all the latest legislation and guidance around food allergens.
If you own, manage or work in a food related business, you will be affected and will need to ensure your operation is compliant with EU Food Information Regulation No. 1169/2011 (FIR) / Food Information for Consumers Regulation (FIC). These regulations affect all caterers and food service organisations, no matter how big or small, and require food businesses to provide allergy information on unpackaged and pre-packed foods.
As a business owner or food handler, you also have a duty to comply with the provisions of Regulation (EC) 852/2004 of the European Parliament on the Hygiene of Foodstuffs, the Food Safety Act 1990, and Food Hygiene (England) Regulations 2005. This requires Food Businesses to ensure that food handlers are supervised, instructed and trained in food hygiene and food safety in a way that is appropriate to the work they do and enables them to handle food safely and hygienically.
