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.
