Food allergies are a growing health concern worldwide. The problem is particularly pronounced in Australia, where prevalence levels have reached 10 per cent among infants and five per cent among young children. 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.
