FATC has been set up to offer food allergy awareness training to food operation businesses allowing them to understand their obligations under the new law.

The freefrom market is estimated to be worth £233 million by 2014 (Datamonitor) with gluten-free making up the largest part. Gluten-free is also estimated to be worth £100 million to the catering and hospitality sector. Can you afford to miss out on this market sector?

In a report from Brighton & Sussex Medical school, University of Brighton it states that 1-2% of adults and 5-8% of children in the UK are affected by food allergies and it concludes that “in order for restaurants to act within the law and to protect their clientele, issues surrounding the servicing of food to allergic customers’ needs to be addressed as a priority.”

FATC is offering venues certificated CIEH & RSPH training and consultancy to train staff to have a greater understanding of food allergies, coleiac disease and intolerances.

We can assist with the implementation of policies and procedures,  which will result in offering allergy affected diners a safe and positive experience and in return offering venues increased revenue and customer loyalty.

Once certified venues are listed on the FATC site, they will be supported by personal recommendations from satisfied customers, which attract new customers and increases revenue.
