The objective of this complimentary webinar (45-minute presentation / 15-minute Q&A) is to discuss the results of the SGS industry survey on challenges, needs and gaps in allergen management and control and also provide an update on published guidelines covering different aspects of allergen risk management such as training, supply management and effective communication.

Agenda

  • Background to food allergens and intolerance 
  • SGS survey on industry challenges, needs and gaps in allergen management and control 
  • Update of available guidelines
  • Overview of basic components of an effective allergen control plan 
  • Conclusions

BackgroundAllergen management requires an integrated approach and effective communication of allergen information throughout the supply chain. Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) assume the development and implementation of a prevention plan, so that the presence of critical allergens in the final product is prevented. HACCP plans aim to identify the critical points in a product’s manufacture where additional measures can be taken to minimise the presence of allergens in the final product. In the event that HACCP and GMP practices suggest that the implementation of those additional measures may not be enough to exclude the risk of cross contamination, then appropriate labeling must be introduced.

Presenter- Dr. Evangelia Komitopoulou - SGS Global Technical Manager – Food

Target Audience - The webinar is aimed at companies interested to get a good understanding of currently available food allergens guidelines, or professionals and others that wish to be educated on the topic.
