After receiving concerns from our community about the lack of access to 'lifeline' products, Allergy UK is appealing to supermarkets and to shoppers to think about those that need ‘Freefrom’ and alternative foods to feed their families.
We have written an open letter, alongside the Anaphylaxis Campaign and BSACI to supermarkets on the issues around availability of 'Freefrom’ and alternative foods during the coronavirus pandemic. The letter is available to download at the bottom of this page.
