Allergen Management and VITAL
Management of allergens is a critical component of any food safety management program. When allergens are present they must be declared and controlled in the food manufacturing environment. This course will assist you in understanding allergens and the risks associated with mismanagement. It will also provide you with the skills required to develop an allergen management plan for your business based upon international food safety standards.
Precautionary allergen statements are voluntary and are widely misused by the food industry. In 2005 the Allergen Bureau was established as an initiative of the Australian Food and Grocery Council to improve allergen management in the food industry. They developed a tool called VITAL, a scientific based methodology to determine risk of cross contamination of an allergen. The Allergen Bureau is now recognised worldwide as a leading resource for food manufacturers. This course provides a practical training workshop developed by the Allergen Bureau. The workshop is designed to provide the knowledge and skills required to apply the VITAL Online system in your business.
