How to protect your
customers with allergies

Properly labelling
your food items

Labelling containers accurately will prevent any misuse or mixing of allergens when preparing food.

Avoiding cross-contact of ingredients

Protect your customers from traces of allergens by keeping ingredients separate during storage and use.

Maintaining high standards of
cleanliness in your kitchen

Regular cleaning and sanitizing of dishes and food contact surfaces prevents any allergen particles from spreading.

Separating utensils & cooking equipment used for food allergens

Using different utensils and cooking equipment for allergens reduces the chances of cross-contact.

Promoting high standards of
hygiene for your employees

Encouraging employees to have proper food handler hygiene will reduce the chances of person-to-food cross-contact.

Educating your serving staff
about your menu

Knowing which foods on the menu contain allergens will help customers make the safe choice for their food orders.


This course is recommended for chefs, food managers, servers, kitchen staff, and early childhood educators. We highly recommend taking the Allergen Course in conjunction with our Food Handlers Course to give you a broader scope of knowledge about food safety in the community. Understanding the basics of food safety will give you a strong foundation for this course.
