FEM launch Cambro Allergen-Free range for safe food prep, storage and allergy reg. compliance

Cambro Allergen-Free Camsquares measuring cups and dissolvable labelsCatering for individuals with allergies and intolerances is not only worth big bucks, but it is now law that caterers must be able to tell customers if menu items contain any of the main 14 allergens.

It is vital that caterers not only list the allergen containing ingredients, but also be aware of any cross contamination during food preparation and storage, as this also needs to be disclosed to customers. Cross contamination is one of the main causes of allergens reaching customers who have food allergies and intolerances.

In order to ensure food is prepared safely and free from allergens and cross contamination, FEM supplies the Cambro Allergen-Free range which includes Allergen-Free Camsquares, measuring cups and StoreSafe dissolvable labels.

The Cambro Allergen-Free Camsquares are food storage boxes designated for allergen-free ingredients. They also use purple on their graduations, logo and seal covers to easily differentiate these ingredients from other containers in the kitchen. The seal covers feature an inner and outer seal to help keep ingredients safe from cross-contamination, even during transportation. The Camsquares are available in a range of capacities up to 11.4 litres.

As well as having the right equipment in the kitchen, all staff need to be trained in good kitchen practice in order to understand the requirements of food allergic individuals and how to prevent cross contamination.

FEM’s Cambro Allergen-Free Camsquares list prices start from £4.60 +VAT for the 1.9 litre container measuring 185mm (w) x 185mm (h) x 100mm (d) (model 2SFSCW441).
