The requirement to provide allergenic ingredients information do not apply for cookery schools. Cookery schools where students are learning how to bake bread for example and are eating the bread they have prepared themselves do not need to follow the rules.

For those running cookery demonstrations to small groups of people and then the people eat the food will need to comply with the requirements of the Regulation as they are considered to be food businesses.

Cookery schools covering food allergens and its management as part of their curriculum with students need to know and be able to apply the knowledge relating to the control of food ingredients, including allergens, at all stages of food purchase and production. They will need to understand the process for ensuring that accurate allergenic ingredient information should be made available for consumers at point of sale and service.
