A ”Guide to Food Allergy” provides essential up to date information has been a real help to our teams in schools across our estate to learn about the legal requirements regarding serving food to those who live with food allergies. It covers information on the top 14 allergens, provides guidance on training that in recent months we have been delivering to our management team and front line colleagues along expert advice to staff such as what to do when someone experiences a severe allergic reaction.
It is the latest support Allergy UK has brought out to support the catering industry as part of its Allergy Aware Scheme, which was created to help caterers provide peace of mind for allergy sufferers. It aims to provide pupils and parents confidence when eating in school and allows Juniper Ventures to show how seriously we take allergen awareness and offer a high standard service for those with allergies. According to the charity, about 44% of allergy sufferers are living in daily fear of a reaction.
