why us? why now?

Safety is the number one concern on the minds of consumers and companies these days.  It is important that foodservice can demonstrate they are doing all that they can to maximize safety efforts.  Food allergy training has always played an important role in protecting guests, staff and companies.  

Food allergy safety like separation, cross-contact prevention and informed decisions all have similarities with COVID-19 safety protocols.

Companies that implement team-wide, food allergy training can increase safety standards and efficiencies. 

In addition, during this time of slower operations, adopting a consistent company-wide food allergy training approach slower operations can be the perfect opportunity for companies to revisit their ability to accommodate dietary restrictions to (re)capture the hearts, minds and (most importantly) revenue share of this consumer group.

Food Allergies

There are 170 food allergies identified globally.  You can’t always accommodate every dietary restriction but teams can communicate safely by creating on training standard with Dine Aware’s online training.     



Each of our 6 courses (Manager, Back of House, Front of House, Bartender, Host, Diswasher) have been to ensure that the entire team is on the same awareness page 100% of the time.



Employees have 30 days to complete their online, video-based course.  They can complete the course at their own pace.  They can start and stop as often as they need to during that 30 day period.



Just like how we automate food allergy training for the whole team each course also produces automatically a digital certificate that can be printed, downloaded, emailed and socially shared .
