Transparent information on the allergens in a dish is more than an obligation

Allergen rules require you to give clear information on the allergens in the food you serve. But with an extensive or variable menu, it is difficult for your employees to keep track of this.

Know the allergens in your dishes

A growing group of people avoid certain foods. For different reasons such as allergies, diets or convictions. As a business owner, you are obligated to inform your guests about the allergens in your food. How you do this, is up to you. Do you opt for a complete list of allergens on your menu? Or do guests ask your staff? In any case, it’s your responsibility to make sure guests get the information they need.

Every day you use dozens, if not hundreds of ingredients in your dishes. Manually keeping track of all the allergens per dish is nearly impossible. Thanks to our collaboration with PS in Foodservice you have access to the allergen information of ingredients. Based on the recipe you enter in Horeko, you see the allergens per subproduct or dish. This way you can always advise guests on which allergens are in a dish and which alternatives are possible.

Up-to-date allergen information on every level

An allergen is a component that can cause an allergic reaction. European legislation has distinguished 14 allergens that need indicating. For example soy, gluten and nuts. Over 2% of population has a sensitivity for one of these allergens, in some cases this can be life threatening. Not to mention, more and more people are choosing to avoid certain foods.

From the moment you import ingredients into the system, the allergens are also known. When a subproduct is prepared in the kitchen, the Operater can print a label with all the allergens in it. This way, the next person using this subproduct also knows what’s in it – even if they haven’t made it. The dish you serve of course doesn’t have a label, but the allergens are easily found. You can pull up the allergens per dish on the Operator and the information can also be exported to your POS or handhelds. This allows your serving staff to know which allergens are in a dish.

Appropriate advice, good service

Some dishes cannot be altered and the allergens are set. But often you can make a small adjustment, avoiding the unwanted allergen. In Horeko you can see which subproduct and/or ingredient is responsible for a certain allergen. This allows you to easily offer an alternative.

Because the information is available for both the kitchen and the serving staff, anyone can offer your guest advice. Take that extra step and go beyond what’s necessary. With Horeko you offer top notch service regarding allergens.
