Places now open for IoH food allergy regulation seminar

The Sussex branch of the Institute of Hospitality is to hold a seminar on new food regulations on allergens coming into force across Europe this December.

Set for the evening of 19 May in the Hotel Sofitel London Gatwick, the sessions will address the implications of the new regulations, which require all caterers to provide information to customers about the allergens contained within the food, whether it is packaged or not.

It will consider the consequences of food allergies, how to comply with the ruling, look at the penalties for non-compliance, and suggest tools to help businesses prepare. Businesses that handle the new rules properly will win over new food allergy customers, along with their friends and colleagues.

Speakers will include Steve Pugh, head of labelling at DEFRA; John Dyson, managing director of CoComs and food and technical affairs advisor at the BHA; Lynne Regent, chief executive of the Anaphylaxis Campaign; Wan Mak, head of nutrition and dietetics at Sodexo UK & Ireland; with the closing remarks scheduled to come from Peter Ducker, chief executive, Institute of Hospitality.

There will also be a dinner and opportunities for networking.

Spaces are limited and can be booked at the Food Allergy Aware website. For more information, call Jane Geering on 07771 862 582 or email at
