Why Train with Us?

AllerTrain by MenuTrinfo was born when CEO, Betsy Craig, saw a growing need for food allergy and gluten-free training and awareness within our food service industry. It has developed into a wide variety of training options to suit every member of the industry.

The majority of the AllerTrain courses are ANSI accredited and meet state specific training mandates. From corporations to independent restaurants, AllerTrain has trained over 100K across the country. With both an eLearning platform and live training taught by Master Trainers, AllerTrain is an accessible option for every learner. We are the only company that offers an in-person allergy training option which is the chosen method to teach and have students retain the information.

Our latest training is a Food Handlers Certification which dives into the proper methods for safely handling food for those in the industry referred to as “food handlers”.
