Allergy Accreditation Scheme 

(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Once you’ve got your allergy awareness scheme in place in your pub, put cross-contamination checks in place and trained your front of house and kitchen staff in best practices you’ll naturally want to see all that hard work recognised. Just as Cask Marque is an important signpost for your ale drinkers, so will Allergy UK’s Allergy Aware Scheme be an important signpost for your diners.

The Allergy Aware Scheme will recognise restaurants, hotels and pubs that provide ‘exceptional service’ for people with food allergies and intolerances and those that offer gold standard allergen management. The charity said the scheme also aimed to “put peace of mind on the menu’ for the estimated 2m people in the UK who suffer from food allergies”.
