The FDA’s Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act requires that products containing milkas well as the other allergenslist it as an ingredient on the product's packaging. To assure compliance with legislation on allergen-management, and to notify internal staff quickly on the presence of potential allergens, dairy producers can rely on a food and beverage ERP system designed for their unique needs.

A dairy producer’s ERP can be used to enter data on allergens, which need to be reported to key stakeholders to create visibility into the presence of allergens during processes in manufacturing and distribution.

While dairy producers are more focused on milk allergens, it's just as important to track the risk of cross-contamination with non-milk allergens. These allergens might be in the same area processed in other production runs. This means, the produced item “may contain” an allergenbut in very low quantities. ERP for dairy producers should also share this visibility with key stakeholders.

Avoiding milk, or items containing milk products, is the best way to manage a milk allergy. It's simple—dairy producers need to identify and track allergens.
