Allergen information is essential for consumers, providing accurate information enables them to make informed decisions and eat out/in safely.

If businesses do not declare their product information, then there is a risk to consumers.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, more companies are providing takeaway and delivery food services, therefore providing allergen information before the food is purchased & at the point of delivery is essential.
