Food allergy information.

A new website/database has been enabled for the food industry and consumers alike.

The project is to provide credible sources of information, which address the concerns and needs of various stakeholder groups. These include the general public, the agro-food industry (including primary producers, manufacturers and retailers), allergic consumers, health professionals and regulators involved in safety assessments of allergenic risks posed by novel foods.

InformAll is funded under the 5th Framework programme of the EU through the Quality of Life and Management of Living Resources Key Action. The project brings together clinicians, food chemists, social scientists, allergy patient groups, food manufacturers and retailers from 41 organisations representing 16 European countries and the USA.
