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 offers certificated CIEH food safety and food allergy training as well as RSPH food allergy training. We can provide comprehensive consultancy to put policies in place to give staff knowledge on both the food allergens and the customer service need to ensure the Free from customer has a postive dining experience. Lets make #FreeFromFoodsSexy NOT Boring!!

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.
