Allergenen Consultancy is de eerste erkende Europese VITAL trainer

In allergen management a risk assessment has an important role. When is the allergic consumer at risk? And when is a warning for cross-contact needed ('may contain traces' also called ‘precautionary allergen labeling')?
Based on scientific information, Allergen Bureau has developed the VITAL Program. This system is used worldwide for risk assessment of allergens. Various European Member States apply VITAL to allergen recalls. And retailers such as Albert Heijn also demand a VITAL allergen calculation from their private label suppliers to decide if cross-contact with allergens is required on the label.

This training is designed for quality managers, QA-managers, product specification managers, auditors at certification bodies, consultants, Regulatory Affairs Managers and R&D management. In short, anyone who has to deal with food safety and labeling.

Web-based training

Our web-based training is possible from any computer or laptop. Only a camera, microphone (standard on many laptops) and a quiet environment are required. We provide a web-based training environment. It is not necessary to have an account or a paid subscription. 
The training takes place in small groups and with 2 teachers. In this way we guarantee interactivity, both between the teacher and the student, but also between the participants themselves. 
The training is interactive and not pre-recorded (no webinar). Within the digital training environment, we can share screens with each other or in subgroups so that we are able to look along with the VITAL calculations performed.This is also possible in a private mode without the entire group listening in or watching.
