What does ANSI (American National Standards Institute) Accreditation Mean?

The American National Standards Institute is a non-profit organization that creates voluntary guidelines for products, services, processes, systems and personnel in nearly every sector in the United States.

“HelloFresh delivers fresh foods to customers all over the US, so it was critical that our culinary, procurement, and operational teams were up to date on how to safely develop and deliver recipes that fit all special dietary needs.  AllerTrain was an informative, fun, and extremely useful course to bring awareness around the issues of food allergies, intolerances, and sensitivities.  It opened up the conversation in our company about food safety and ensured our teams are now all educated on this important topic.”
-Rebecca L., HelloFresh US

“The AllerTrain course is a fantastic tool for staff training on one of the most current and important restaurant topics – food allergies.  As a multi-location, day- and night-shift business, the AllerTrain online course allows our staff to be educated at a time convenient to them.  Training happens when they are ready for it.  Even some of our most educated staff comes away from the training with a better understanding of how to approach sales and service for our guests with allergies.  Our guests are amazed at the knowledge, efficiency and empathy of our servers, cooks and management.  We have become noted in the allergy community as a safe and easy place to bring their children and friends with allergies.  Thanks to AllerTrain that means more business for us.”
