The objective of the one hour complimentary webinar (45-min presentation / 15-min Q&A) is to provide an overview on the challenges in the industry and available Guidelines with regard to Allergen Management. 


  • 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


Allergen 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 labelling must be introduced.
