MenuTrinfo has been an invaluable partnership for Vanderbilt University. We are so grateful for their guidance and encouragement to make our dining program the very best it can be for students with food allergies. Our program would not be where it is today without their support. Thank you MenuTrinfo!

What is a Food Allergy and Gluten-Free Audit?

A hands-on review and analysis of your food service operation from loading dock to table top.

Our Allergen Audits review and analyze all commercial kitchen policies and procedures. This ensures diners with special dietary needs are being served correctly by the knowledge we provide and the confidence we instill.

Our audits have 3 phases:

Phase 1: An application is reviewed for the content and the extent of the facility’s policies, procedures, training and assessment tools.

Phase 2: Onsite audit confirms the policies, procedures, training and assessment tools are in place and functional in the intended environment.

Phase 3: A certificate and a detailed report is provided that is a summary of the audit including any recommendations for improvement.

* Certification requires annual review from MenuTrinfo®, LLC.
* Certification requirements are monitored monthly through required allergen testing, and quarterly reports and annual audits are produced and performed.
* Program is location-specific. However, portions of program will be generalized to all institutional food service facilities.
