FATC has been set up to educate and assist the catering industry to become Food Allergy Aware, as well as to support those affected by food allergies.
In a report from Sussex University 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 training and consultancy to educate staff to have a greater understanding of food allergies and intolerances, as well as implement policies and procedures, which will then result in offering allergy affected diners a safe and enjoyable 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.
Are you EU FIR Ready? By December 2014 the food service industry will have to adhere to the EU Food Information Regulations (FIR) 1169/2011 in regards to listing all food ingredients, highlighting EU listed allergens for their entire menus. FATC can help you with the documentation required.
FATC also offers a virtual marketplace that provides extensive information on suppliers, producers, co-operatives and wholesalers of specialist and non-specialist “free-from” products to support restaurants so that they can produce tasty and varied menu alternatives.
