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 heightened awareness within our foodservice 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 AllerTrainers, 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 certificate program which dives into the proper methods for safely handling food for those in the industry referred to as “food handlers”.
