Food Allergen Icons

International Food Allergen Icons are easily recognizable symbols for use in the food manufacturing and food warehouse environments that can be recognized and understood regardless of a person's native language. The allergen icons are available for use in the food industry at plant and warehouse locations to:

  • Identify tools used for cleaning specific allergens.
  • Identify the presence of specific allergens in ingredients (i.e. place a milk icon sticker on a pallet of bagged ingredients which contains milk powder)
  • Link to training material in situations where language barriers exist in plants and can be bridged through icons used as a visual indication of the presence of allergens.
  • Identification of a plant area, to indicate the presence of a specific allergen.

Consider the use of these icons in your workplace.
