On Feb. 7, 2023, the Baking Association of Canada hosted an informative webinar presented by Food Allergy Canada and Université Laval. Canada’s New Allergen Management Guidelines: What Bakeries Need to Know. This free webinar will be of special interest to businesses that label food products for retail and sell directly to the consumer.
A multi-stakeholder collaboration in Canada, involving food manufacturers, Université Laval, Canadian Allergists, and Canada’s national patient organization, Food Allergy Canada, has led to the development of new proposed Allergen Management Guidelines for Food Manufacturers. These guidelines aim to help to support food manufacturers in their implementation of effective allergen control plans including the responsible use of Precautionary Allergen Labelling, to better meet the needs of Canadians managing food allergy.
The presentation is entitled “Enhancing Guidance for Food Allergen Management in Canada including a Risk-based Approach for the Application of Precautionary Allergen Labelling.”
Tune in to hear from Food Allergy Canada and Université Laval on the launch of the new guidelines and related resources for the food industry. Offering a bakery’s perspective will be May Khosravanivafa, Quality Assurance Manager, and Joe Bonofiglio, Operations Manager, Toute Sweet Cakes & Pastries Ltd. in Woodbridge, Ont.
