Guidance on Food Allergen Management for Food Manufacturers

Published: 07/03/2014

This Guidance document was prepared by FoodDrinkEurope to provide sound, evidence-based and consistent information on good practice in risk management of allergenic foods and certain food intolerances for food producers of foodstuffs intended for sale to the general population.

By harmonising and disseminating good practice across the European food industry at all levels, this Guidance has helped ensure a consistent understanding of, and approach to, managing allergens and certain food causing intolerances to a high standard throughout the European food industry.

This will help minimise the risk to allergic consumers and enable them to make informed product choices.
