  • Food recalls information – To supply information on information for food recalls, and medicine recalls (medicine only related to food allergies) British Food Allergy Awareness this is done via social media and this website.
  • Encourage people to give feedback to food industry or catering industry, whether good or bad, it makes a difference, it gives companies insight of areas that more training is required, and the valuable feedback is nice for companies and staff to feel valued for their commitment for keeping us safe.
