The Caterer Allergen Summit

It has never been more important for hospitality businesses to be one step ahead when it comes to allergens. Consumers are increasingly looking for information to help them make informed decisions about what they choose to eat, and the consequences of getting it wrong severe.


The Caterer’s Allergens Summit is a half day (12.30pm-5pm) dedicated to equipping F&B, operations and marketing professionals with the knowledge and best practice to set a strategy that keeps your customers and staff safe and informed.


Leading allergen experts, including Dr Robert Boyle of Imperial College London and the Food Standards Agency will give an insight into what operators should be prepared for in 2020 and beyond, including key risks and responsibilities. Plus, food safety experts and forward-thinkers from some of the UK’s most prominent operators will discuss their strategies, the steps they’ve taken and how they communicate to customers effectively.

Topics covered include

  • Why are food allergies increasing globally, what to expect in the years ahead and how to plan a strategy that keeps your customers and staff safe
  • The Food Standards Agency outlines your responsibilities, including what you are required to provide by law and how this might change
  • How Pret became an industry leader in serving guests with allergen requirements following the tragic death of Natasha Ednan-Laperouse
  • Signposting, discussion or full labelling: what are the best ways to communicate with your customers?
  • How can you effectively train your staff to be allergen aware and protect your customers and reputation?
