New £8 qualification to help businesses understand allergen rules



A new qualification has been launched aimed at helping foodservice staff better understand allergen rules and employers comply with legislation.

 
The Highfield Level 2 Award in Food Allergen and Control in Catering (RQF) is aimed at anyone involved in food preparation and service within the catering, hospitality and licensing sectors, and will give employees knowledge relating to the control of ingredients and allergies at all stages of food purchase and production.

The qualification, which can be completed in five hours and costs just £8, will also provide employees with an understanding of the process for ensuring that accurate ingredient information is available for customers at point of sale and service, while giving businesses confidence that they and their staff comply with the law. 
 
Figures released by the Food Standards Agency at the end of 2016 show that the number of businesses receiving warnings for failure to comply with food standards in the year after the introduction of the legislation increased to over 23,000 from just under 15,000 – an increase of 59%.
