A growing amount of consumers are now looking out for allergen information when eating out. With over 2 million food sensitive people in the UK, this particular customer demand is definitely worth prioritising.
Allergen compliance is one of the key priorities for restaurateurs. Failure to comply with the current Legislation (EU Foods information for consumers regulation no. 1169/2011) is absolute negligence; which may result in severe business liability risks.
Over 2 million people in the UK have a food allergy and an estimated 600,000 have coeliac disease. This means that restaurants must take all the precautions necessary to ensure that their guests do not end up having mild or even severe anaphylactic reactions.
