The International Flight Services Association (IFSA) World Food Safety Guidelines for Airline Catering has previously not included allergen management, however agreement was obtained last year that an additional allergen section would be included. This covers expectations around allergen management in the catering kitchen and provision of accurate information to crew.
This is a guideline document that airline caterers worldwide rely on, so the inclusion of an allergen section is a significant step forward.
