The British Retail Consortium (BRC) Global Standards has published a guideline to help manufacturers identify allergens and ensure best practices are met and risks reduced.
The publication: ‘Best Practice Guideline: Allergen Management in Food Manufacturing Sites’ will provide explanation of allergen management requirements in the BRC Global Standard for Food Safety.
The guideline will help individuals and companies develop allergen management systems and procedures that meet the requirements of the BRC Standard.
It focusses on five themes – significance, suppliers, separation, scheduling and sanitation.
