New version of Food Industry Guide to Allergen Management and Labelling

May 20, 2021 at 4:24 PM

Managing the risks associated with food allergens is a major food safety challenge for food producers and suppliers. Incorrect or unclear allergen information can be a matter of life or death for people living with a food allergy
To help food businesses manage these risks the Allergen Bureau and the Australian Food and Grocery Council (AFGC) have just released an updated version of the Food Industry Guide to Allergen Management and Labelling. The update incorporates new requirements for the labelling of allergens in food arising from Proposal P1044 – Plain English Allergen Labelling­
A copy of the guide is available from the Allergen Bureau and the AFGC.
