Organisers of the Free From Food Summit, the Food and Drink Innovation Network, will be focusing on the implications of new EU regulations on allergens for foodservice operators.
Under the new regulations coming into force in December 2014, all foodservice outlets will need to be able to provide accurate information to anyone who asks about the major allergens in their food. A new seminar at the Free From Food Summit, will consider how well foodservice outlets are equipped to do this.
According to the Network, the new regulations are a problem but also a terrific opportunity with the free from foodservice market estimated to be worth £100m for gluten-free food alone.
To help food service providers to both tackle the problem and to seize the opportunity, the Food and Drink Innovation Network has added a second day’s seminar devoted to foodservice onto its annual Free From Summit, 18-19 September 2013 in Daventry.
Co-chaired by Antony Worrall Thompson and the Michelle Berriedale-Johnson, founder of the FreeFrom Food Awards and new FreeFrom Eating Out Awards, the Summit will provide a raft of speakers and networking opportunities and is described as a must-attend event for anyone interested in free from foods.
