Allergen Management Webinar

Practicing food allergen awareness is one of the cornerstones of the modern food industry and must be the center of attention at every food manufacturing facility.

The allergen management process involves evaluation of the likelihood of allergen cross contamination associated with every step of the food production process, from sourcing raw materials, sanitation, and processing through to labeling and marketing of a finished product. Particular emphasis is also needed in validation of the allergen sanitation program and ongoing verification of its effectiveness.

Human error is still one of the main causes of food allergen related incidents. Practicing effective food allergen management is the key to ensuring safe food production at every food manufacturing, wholesale or retail facility. The bottom line is that food allergen awareness is everyone’s responsibility.

This webinar will provide an overview of all of the key pieces in the allergen management puzzle and will be useful to people working at all levels in the food industry.
