There are exceptional situations where the effective provision of written food allergen declaration / information for non pre- packed foods may require special arrangements. And as a food business operator to such facilities and institutions it becomes your responsibility to share food allergen information to your special segment of consumers. How do you continue to provide your food service to people along with the food allergen information in such special institutions? Yes, in certain cases it may happen that the consumer of your non pre- packed food product is not in a position or circumstance to understand the information you provide. For example, Childcare facilities frequently prepare meals for the children in their care and so are required to provide written food allergen information. However, young children are not in a position to understand or appreciate written food allergen information and therefore, it is necessary that this information is provided to the parent or guardian, particularly when new or altered menu items are made available.

Iviand ( www.iviand.com ) has created software for food allergen management system, which is easy to understand, use and most importantly, it aids you in your business to provide food allergen information for your food products easily.

Other special facilities/ institutions where non pre-packed food is made available for consumption include healthcare facilities, detention centers and charitable homes and institutions. These places also need to be equipped with the information related to food allergen.

Healthcare

 

Healthcare facilities must be in a position to provide written food allergen information to patients who consume their meals outside of the regular dining areas, such as in their room or ward. This is most effectively achieved by providing the information on menus, though other written formats are also acceptable. For patients who are not in a position to understand or appreciate written food allergen information, their carer or guardians should be provided with the written information in the interests of those patients.

Charities and Detention Centers

Individuals in detention centers that are not able to access general dining area(s) must be provided with written food allergen information, particularly when new or altered menu items are made available.

The requirement to provide food allergen declaration for non pre-packed food applies to food for sale or made available free of charge. Therefore, charitable institutions or other organizations that provide food at no cost, either at central locations or delivered to homes or individuals must provide written food allergen information. The provision of written allergen information at central locations will be similar to that for restaurants. However, written information may need to be supplemented by verbal communication relating to relevant food allergens in certain circumstances.

In all these special areas and organizations, information can be declared and details of the food contents and food allergens can be provided through the endeavors in the software developed for food allergen management system developed by
