Eating out with food allergens – is the theme for Food Allergy Week 2021

This year’s Allergy & Anaphylaxis Australia (A&AA)  Food Allergy Week theme focuses on eating out with food allergies.

Food businesses and consumers are urged to be aware of their responsibility when it comes to managing the growing incidence of food allergies in the community.

The NSW Food Authority have released updated ’Food Authority Be Prepared Be Allergy Aware’ booklet.

The information was developed for the retail food service sector and includes new requirements for declaring common food allergens on food labels to help people quickly and easily find information they need to make informed food safety choices.

Australia has one of the highest rates of food allergies in the world and statistics show that one in ten babies born in Australia today will develop a food allergy.
