Of UK hospitality workers, 68% feel that they require more information about allergens and almost a quarter don’t feel confident advising customers with allergies. Whilst amongst consumers, 89% believe staff need to be made more aware of allergies, with two-thirds of them believing the issue was a matter of life or death.

These are alarming stats, as food allergies and allergens have been one of the most pressing concerns that hospitality operators have faced, with the fallout from bad practice leading to fatal consequences in some high-profile cases.
