Free Food Allergy Cards

Food Allergy Cards for FREE – in English.

We realize that communicating a food allergy can be difficult not only when travelling, but even at restaurants around the block. In a busy restaurant setting where there are multiple people handling your order, sometimes a food allergy request can go through a game of broken telephone, leaving you hoping that your meal is truly safe.

 

Equal Eats is making our English allergy cards 100% free to help you ensure that your food allergy is understood. It’s amazing how much chefs and foodservice staff appreciate having your food allergies in writing so they can cross reference with ingredients and during food prep and plating.

 

Here are the steps to creating a free allergy translation card in English:

 

1. Go to our order page – Select either pre-set cards if you have one specific allergy/diet, or customized if you have multiple food allergies.

Food Allergy Sticky Notes are Here

 

I have to admit, it wasn’t the first product I envisioned rolling out under our new brand Equal Eats. But when a pandemic hits, all game plans go out the window.

Our Food Allergy Sticky Notes are a helpful solution to avoid contact during the challenges posed by COVID-19. They promote limited contact by allowing others to simply rip off a sheet and stick it. They can be useful for foodservice staff, caregivers, schools, camps and others.

We have a limited initial run of allergens available, but will continue to grow our collection. To view, visit www.equaleats.com.

Infographic – Foodservice Prompting Customers to Disclose Dietary Restrictions

Earlier this year, I did a research study as part of my master’s degree in hopes to discover new insight on an area that I’ve been very curious about. Especially after seeing studies showing the variance in number of people with food allergies who always disclose their food allergies at restaurants.

The objective of my research was to find out how people with dietary restrictions felt about the foodservice industry “prompting” them to disclose their food allergies. The results are very supportive as you see in this overview infographic.

I would like to do a follow-up study with the foodservice industry to find out their feelings on the subject. Hopefully it can lead to helpful recommendations on ways to keep diners safe that are achievable and helpful for both sides.

Exciting Changes to Come

It has been a very exciting year so far for Allergy Translation. I decided to pursue a Master’s degree at Queen’s University in Kingston, ON. I thought it would be a great opportunity to network with other entrepreneurs and business innovators. I wasn’t sure what it would lead to, but the pieces are all starting to come together.

This company has always been a passion of mine, but always a part-time pursuit. I realize that the more dedicated time I put into it, the more exciting the results. My first step in this transition to full-time operations was to simply listen to all of your experiences and insight. I wanted to learn what you love about Allergy Translation Cards, and how you would like to see them improved. Thank you to everyone who completed our recent user survey and provided some incredible ideas.

read every single comment, and am excited to unveil our strategy to create more impact and help more travellers with dietary restrictions. Stay tuned in the coming weeks and months as exciting changes start to unroll. If you want to join our customer advisory team and have the “inside track” plus opportunities for feedback, please sign up!

Thanks for all of your support, and safe travels!
