Food allergies are a growing health concern worldwide.

As allergen prevalence increases, food producers are confronted with the need to prevent cross-contamination and improve allergen management programmes in production facilities.

In this webinar, Jasmine Lacis-Lee from the Allergen Bureau and Martin Candia from Romer Labs discuss methods of ensuring regulatory compliance, the optimal strategies for carrying out a risk assessment, and best practice guideline for allergen analysis.

Further topics will include:

  • Global regulations on allergen management and product labelling
  • Allergen risk assessment
  • Sampling plans and strategies
  • Methods of analysis and applications to different processes

Registrants will have the opportunity to submit questions to the speakers when registering and during the session.
