Storage area

Steps should be taken to ensure that non-allergenic ingredients do not come into contact with allergens in subsequent handling and storage. Allergenic raw materials should be stored in clearly identified areas (for example using colour-coded boxes or the demarcation of storage areas using painted lines on the floor).

Storage containers

Where allergenic raw materials are de-bagged or de-boxed, they should, if possible, be placed in dedicated lidded and labelled containers and made easily identifiable. Such containers should not be used for storage of any other raw materials.
