Restaurant Managers have a lot on their plates, however food safety has to be a constant priority when running a food service establishment. All operators and staff must be aware of the food allergens contained in their prepared foods. There are new laws requiring restaurants to clearly identify any food product(s) with ingredients that contain protein derived from any of the 14 major allergenic foods and food groups: eggs, molluscs, crustaceans, celery, milk, fish, treenuts, sulphites, soya, sesame, peanuts, mustard, lupin, and gluten.
DayMark is now providing the food service industry with Allergen Labelling that is affordable, easy to use and will help keep your customers safe and your establishment safe from potential costly prosecution. Built on our MoveMark Removable label stock, these allergen labels can follow ingredients all the way to prepared foods by transferring from container to container as elements are combined, ensuring that your staff is always aware when a potential allergen is present in final menu items.
Food Information Regulations EU1169/2011 (FIR Regs)
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) in conjunction with DEFRA are introducing new allergen labelling laws which will come into effect in December 2014.
These new regulations affect all foodservice organisations serving unpackaged food, or food that is packaged on site for immediate consumption. Establishments will be required to provide details of all possible allergens that are contained within the menu items being served. The details of the recognised Allergens must be marked in a clearly visible place so that employees of the establishment can
provide correct information to consumers.
DayMark Allergen Labels provide a perfect solution.
