Allergens can pose a major health risk to a significant proportion of the population so the ability to advise colleagues and consumers, and to understand how to control allergens in food production, preparation, serving and sales is essential to public food safety.

On achievement of the qualification learners will have developed the essential knowledge and understanding to make a positive contribution to ensuring that allergens are properly understood and controlled safely in the workplace to protect consumers.
