This event, presented by Food Allergy Aware & Blake Morgan, will explore a fictional scenario of food allergic and coeliac customers being served food that has been incorrectly labelled. The legal responsibilities of each entity involved in the supply chain of food will be examined as well as the concept of due diligence within the industry and product recall.
