I just wanted to give a shout out to great companies like POSoncloud (www.posoncloud.com). They have not only developed a tool for restaurants to improve their service but they also make restaurants very allergen aware! Their tool will allow waiters to have allergen details on their fingertips at the time of ordering. On a recent trip to my hometown, Louisville, KY, I met the CEO and co-founder Sunny Dronawat, who showed me the system and highlighted features that can help restaurants, hospital and school cafeterias avoid accidental ingestions and allergic reactions.
This can help both on the side of ordering but sends the message to the kitchen staff so their are multiple checks to keep us safe. We need more companies like this that help support protecting children and adults with food allergy.
