Airline Food Safety
Allergen Detection Technology

Travelling can be stressful for food-hypersensitive consumers. 

With over 2 million people, in the UK alone, suffering from food allergies and intolerances and an increasing amount of food safety legislation, airlines must cater effectively to those with specific dietary requirements. 

A recent study found that 36% of air travel passengers with allergies believe airlines fail to meet their accommodations.

The Advanced Solution for Travel Businesses

For Food Safety and Quality Assurance teams in the travel industry.

LiberEat is here to enhance your operational efficiency.

LiberEat's Technology Solution

Our technology automatically identifies errors in data – including missing allergen declarations or allergen errors in menus, supplier documentation, and data processing platforms. 

Finding and alerting Food Safety Teams to these errors before they reach a passenger can mitigate the risk of consumer injury and the potential legal, financial, and reputation damage to the airline.

We understand that airlines have unique challenges when upholding food safety standards. 

Legislation from the aircrafts registered country is enforced, and depending on the country, as is the case with the United States and Japan, they may have to follow local laws while in their airspace or on their land. Most countries have regulatory bodies such as the Federal Aviation Administration and the Civil Aviation Authority to enforce relevant legislation and administer penalties for failing to do so. 

LiberEat’s allergen detection technology specialises in identifying and rectifying mistakes in supplier, product and allergen data, guaranteeing that all allergen information is accurate and compliant.

Food-Hypersensitive Consumers and Dietary Choices

Food allergies and hypersensitivities are a growing concern globally, emphasising the necessity for vigilant allergen avoidance. Veganism and vegetarianism are also rising. Robust allergen management and correct dietary declarations are critical in the food industry and your business.

Globally, the International Food Safety Authorities Network (INFOSAN) reported 248 food safety incidents in 2021, which nearly doubled from the previous year. Of these, 18 incidents involved undeclared allergens or ingredients, highlighting the ongoing issue with allergen management in food safety incidents.

Food served on airlines often involves multiple suppliers and rigorous handling processes, increasing the potential for mislabeling or cross-contamination. The complexity of food production and labelling for airlines adds to the risk. It’s for this reason that finding allergen errors in the data before they reach a passenger is essential.

Patients frequently requested specific accommodations from the airline before boarding, such as an opportunity to preboard, announcements pertaining to food allergy on board, alternative snacks, buffer zones and other modifications. Primarily, these accommodations involved peanuts and tree nuts. According to a study by the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.
