Allergy Information

Olive Dining takes allergen compliance very seriously and we have a robust system in place. Full training is provided to our Chef & Ops teams. Our teams work closely with the school, the parents and their children to ensure they have the right food choices and our expert knowledge is used to guide them when making their selections.  Once we have been informed of pupils’ allergies or special dietary requirements, we create a list of all pupils, their particular allergies and the process to follow should they be exposed to ensure that our staff have an easy reference guide to hand during service.


Our menus have all the allergens printed on them for each dish; these menus have been compiled by our Executive Chef team and are overseen and produced by our Nutrition Team. We don’t simply rely on our own well-developed quality management systems in this hugely important area, we also seek professional advice and guidance from a Dietician and Food Safety Advisor. Our menus are analysed to ensure we offer a balanced choice for pupils. Our Development Chefs can be available to advise parents about their children’s specific dietary requirements and suggest alternative recipes or in some cases menus within the constraints of these food intolerances, so that pupils do not unduly miss out on exciting foods that may be suitable for them.


To ensure that pupils with special dietary needs are never put at risk, we have very tight controls and management systems in place within our kitchens and food serving areas. All food on shelves are labelled and separated based on levels of risk to prevent cross-contamination, and our Operations Manager completes a specific Allergen Control Audit on a monthly basis to further clarify that we are preparing and serving food in a safe environment, giving reassurance of a dutiful, accountable and transparent catering partner
