Allergen Management - aha! Label

> overview

Allergies are becoming a topic of growing concern. The effect of allergens and food intolerances on sufferers can sometimes profoundly dictate lifestyle habits and choices. 

IQNet Ltd in collaboration with Service Allergie Suisse (SAS) is delivering the Allergen Management Scheme. This is a product labeling scheme which allows consumers to better identify and manage their choice of products and services.

Product categories which can be assessed for allergen minimised criteria currently include food, cosmetics, detergents and household cleaning equipment. The evaluation process can also be applied to service providers such as restaurants and hotels.

Products and services are evaluated for their potential to cause known allergic reactions. Those deemed to be allergen minimised (according to strict standards set by a scientific advisory board) are then able to display the readily discernable  aha!  label.
