Easy allergen management with e-foods
Monitoring allergen information can be complicated and, if not carefully managed, can be very costly to the food service industry. With prosecutions already making the news, accurate information must be available to the consumer, consequently staff must be well trained and have access to information at all times.
e-foods has been providing allergen support to its customers through its online system, e-live, which gives access to complete nutrition and allergen information. e-live highlights where allergens are present, ensuring that customers can easily monitor what’s going into every meal. Alongside this is a recipe and menu builder that not only provides allergen and nutritional information but also delivers live costing of each dish for effective margin management.
Further support is on hand as Rob Henry, e-foods’ Fresh Food Buyer has completed a Level 3 Award in Food Allergen Management for Caterers. Rob can offer expert advice on initiating and managing the required processes to ensure that accurate ingredient information is available for consumers at point of sale and service. He has knowledge relating to the control of food ingredients at all stages of production and can advise on communication strategies.
Paul Mizen, Managing Director said “The changes to labelling legislation at the end of 2014 meant big changes for the industry and e-live has supported our customers in preparing for and meeting the legislation. Allergen information is updated regularly, so customers can manage changes efficiently. e-live allows e-foods’ customers to manage all suppliers in one place and also brings allergen information under the same umbrella to provide a simple, easy to administer solution.”
