In early January, Anna-Maria delivered an Allergen Awareness Training session to 15 catering team members from across Thomas’ London Day Schools.
The session covered food allergies, the 14 key allergens, allergen labelling legislation, cross-contamination and how to manage food allergies in school kitchens. It also provoked a lot of discussion and ideas about demonstrating best practice at all of Thomas’ school sites.
I took full advantage of Anna-Maria’s experience and knowledge as soon as it was clear that an Allergy Awareness training course was available from Pelican.
All 15-catering staff ranging from chef managers to assistant chefs returned to work after the 3 hour training course completely revitalised, focused and brought up to date regarding allergy awareness within the catering industry.
If you have allergy diets within your nursery, school, college, or restaurant, it is vital that your staff attend this course.Mark Newman,
