Edinburgh Community Food is an approved REHIS training centre. ** EU Food Information for Consumers Regulation No. 1169/2011 I found the training very informative and useful and expanded my knowledge of allergy awareness, and the things that I have learned can definitely help me in the future. I didn’t realise there were so many allergies and certainly wasn’t aware of all the different consequences for both the sufferers and the catering/restaurants involved in preparing food with this in mind. Well-presented in a friendly and inclusive way with time given for questions. This training will help our community cafe be fully compliant and safe. So pleases I did this course! I feel I have a good grounding on allergens now and will be so much more aware about this area now. I will use this in daily life and for volunteering in a community cafe. Thank you!!!
