FAQs

Allergens in food can have serious consequences, including anaphylactic shock. Food companies are responsible for making sure the food they produce is free of allergens. But with so many ingredients and processes, how can you be sure? Taking comprehensive allergen management training is the best way to ensure that your company is properly managing allergens. This course will provide you with the knowledge necessary for creating an effective allergen management program that protects your consumers.

The Allergen Control Plan (ACP) is a document that explains how your company controls allergens within your facility. It will describe where and how you store allergenic foods, as well as how you label them. The ACP should also detail how you clean and sanitize any equipment or surfaces used to make or package food containing allergens. The most important part of your online allergen management training is the allergen management policies—the who, what, where, when, why, and how of your company's allergen control.

 

The following aspects should be included in your Allergen Management Program:

  1. Clear Inventory and Labelling: Ensure cleanliness and organization of ingredient inventory; label with allergen information.
  2. 2. Clean-In-Place (CIP) Systems: Use sanitizers that do not leave residue on equipment surfaces; check cleaning effectiveness regularly.
  3. 3. Production Lines: Assess production lines for cross-contact hazards; ensure thorough cleaning between allergen and non-allergen runs.
  4. Equipment Design: Use equipment that facilitates proper cleaning; eliminate crevices where allergens can hide.
  5. Employee Training: Train employees to recognize allergen hazards; train them on proper cleaning techniques.

The online allergen management course would be useful for the following people:

- Management Representative (s) / Food Safety Team Leader

When you're in a food business, there's a whole lot more to think about than just the taste and presentation of your food. Food allergies are a serious issue for many people, and the rise in food allergies has led to an increased interest in allergen management in the food industry.

Whether you're serving thousands of meals a day in a restaurant or preparing homemade pastries to sell at your local farmers' market, it's important to have a system in place that can help you manage allergens. Why? Because better pre-emptive management of allergens and accurate allergen labeling will help to prevent potential financial implications (for example, from product recall or withdrawal).

Which trade/ industries employees should use the allergen management program?

We believe that all companies that handle, process, and sell food should use allergen management programs. The allergen policy is of utmost importance, especially when it comes to allergens. Why? Because most people are allergic to something. And while some allergies can be innocuous—like a mild case of seasonal hay fever—others are far more dangerous.

The following trades and industries should use an allergen management program:

-Food manufacturing

-Restaurants

-Hospitality

-Child care

-Healthcare

You can get an allergen management certificate by attending an allergen training course that covers the basics of how to identify allergens, what issues allergens cause, and how to manage them.

The course can be completed online. It is designed for people who need to understand how allergens are identified and managed.
