Epping Forest District Council is giving food businesses, within the district, the opportunity for free food allergen awareness training.
Those who complete the training could win a label printer for their business.
Natasha’s Law came into effect on 1 October 2021, requiring all food outlets to provide full ingredient lists with clear allergen labelling on pre-packed for direct sale food.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) has designed an online food allergy and intolerance training course to teach businesses, consumers and others about food allergies and how to handle allergens safely.
Win a label printer
Using funding received from FSA, Epping Forest District Council is encouraging businesses to complete the free allergen awareness training and get the opportunity to win a label printer for their business.
To enter you must:
- Be an independent food business registered within Epping Forest district
- Complete the Food Standards Agency’s free food allergy and intolerance online training – https://allergytraining.food.gov.uk/
- Email a copy of your completed training certificate before midnight on Wednesday 31 January 2024 to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, business name and address, telephone number and email address.
Business can only submit 1 entry to the prize draw. Every entry will receive a free roll of pre-printed allergy labels.
Great opportunity for businesses
Portfolio Holder for Regulatory Services, Cllr Ken Williamson said:
This is an important and great opportunity for businesses to learn how to handle allergens safely and to assure pre-packed foods meet the requirements of Natasha’s Law. I would encourage all businesses within the district to complete the free online training and enter the prize draw.
