Anaphylaxis Campaign Allergy Awareness Week
Anaphylaxis Campaign are running their Allergy Awareness Week from 24th-31st May. The event aimed to raise awareness of their cause to empower the allergic community by giving them the support needed to be positive and confident about managing their allergies.
During Allergy Awareness Week, the Anaphylaxis Campaign also made several webinars available to watch on their website. One of the webinars covers the subject of ‘Food Allergen Legislation Changes’ where Dr Helen Arrowsmith – Principal Food Law Adviser and Allergen Specialist from Campden BRI joins the Anaphylaxis Campaign for a 20-minute session on food labelling changes, including how the legislation works post EU exit and a short version of the PPDS requirements. Certainly one to have a look at!
