"Taking the Always Food Safe Company’s Online Allergen Awareness Course was absolutely time well spent.

The format was clear and easy to follow, and the content was exactly what workers in the trenches – both front and back of the house – need to know to ace this particular, important and often overlooked part of their jobs.

Having the option to learn the material by either watching the videos or reading the text makes it possible for all employees to benefit from the course. In either case, the program is as entertaining as it is informative, making it easy to understand and absorb the material.

The sections on hidden allergens and cross contamination are especially welcome, being points that may be easily overlooked by cooks and waiters alike.

Overall, the production is of a very high quality, and the content and delivery spot on. The downloadable pdf of allergens is a useful bonus."
