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
a free training video for food service staff.
- developed a series of key messages about food allergen management for various sectors throughout the food chain.
- launched a food allergen portal.
The portal provides access to best practice information to help stakeholders manage food allergens.
