FORT COLLINS, Colo. (Jun. 20, 2023) — To better support their shared mission to protect the lives and health of the food allergy community, MenuTrinfo® and Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) are partnering to provide best-in-class training and auditing to the food service industry.

MenuTrinfo exists to inform food service professionals and food manufacturers what they can serve safely to their customers. AllerCheck™ by MenuTrinfo was created to provide kitchens with the confidence to handle all special dietary requests. Having gone through this audit ensures that an operation consistently meets rigorous standards and follows industry best practices for producing and preparing allergen-safe food. Using only verified and experienced food safety professionals, the AllerCheck auditors act as an unbiased second pair of eyes to help identify potential risks or gaps that may have otherwise been overlooked. Having a reliable audit program in place adds an extra layer of strength and validity.

FARE, the nation’s leading non-profit organization engaged in food allergy advocacy, and the largest private funder of food allergy research, understands and appreciates the importance of onsite auditing and has made their own individual efforts and strides over the past several years to enhance allergen-safe service across the food service industry. With a shared mission, MenuTrinfo and FARE have combined efforts and aligned on one comprehensive program solution to meet the uptick in desire and need for onsite auditing services. With AllerCheck now endorsed by FARE, it will be the most robust, recognizable, and trusted program solution in the industry. To date, there are over 120 AllerCheck kitchens and locations, and they are growing as part of this new partnership.

“MenuTrinfo recognizes the benefit and importance of partnering with external organizations in order to spread education and awareness to make food service establishments safer and protect the lives of those with food allergies,” stated Betsy Craig, CEO of MenuTrinfo. “With FARE being the leader in the space of research, education, and patient-focused consulting, this partnership was a no-brainer as we looked at the future of our auditing services and taking it to the next level.”

“Making the lives of the 32 million Americans with severe food allergies safer is our primary focus and partnering with MenuTrinfo is another step in that direction,” says Paul Scribner, VP of Education and Support Programs at FARE. “Through this collaboration we can bring effective, high quality food allergy safety practices to even more colleges, universities, restaurants, and entertainment venues across the United States.”

In addition, MenuTrinfo and FARE look forward to continued partnership opportunities like co-hosting an annual food allergy summit for the hospitality industry which is currently planned for spring of 2024.
