Allergen Collaboration

(September 2014)

FSANZ established the Allergen Collaboration in late 2011 to strengthen engagement and collaboration among a range of stakeholders involved in managing food allergens. 

The Collaboration was established following an allergen review​ by FSANZ.

Members of the Collaboration, including food manufacturing, consumer and government representatives, meet to explore non-regulatory measures that can improve the management of food allergens.

To date, the Collaboration has:

  • audited existing allergen communication material
  • developed a series of key messages about food allergen management for various sectors throughout the food chain
  • launched a food all​ergen portal.

The portal provides access to best practice information to help stakeholders manage food allergens.

In a joint initiative, food service and peak allergy body Collaboration representatives are currently developing a free training video for food service staff, to be made available from the portal and other avenues.
