All food businesses have a legal obligation to produce safe food and food that will not harm ‘at-risk’ consumers. An Allergen Management Program template is a system that serves to identify, control, educate and communicate the risk and presence of food allergens in your business, from raw materials through to finished products.

An effective allergen management program can mean the difference in ensuring that your food business produces food that will not harm the ‘at-risk’ consumer.  There are many different components that need to be considered when developing an allergen management program for your food business.

The key areas include:

  • Understanding the allergen status of all raw materials used and handled by your business.
  • Understanding supplier vulnerabilities relating to allergens.
  • Identifying areas of risk that may be present in your food business.
  • Managing and controlling the flow and use of allergens within your food business.
  • Communicating the presence of allergens to ‘at-risk’ consumers.
  • Verifying the effectiveness of your allergen management program and procedures.

This compliance program provides the foundation framework to further build upon. You may amend the program to suit your own food business in the context of relevant legal, certification or customer requirements.
