The Eating Out Pledge
About one in a hundred people in Ireland have coeliac disease. Eating away from home is perhaps the biggest challenge facing people with coeliac disease today. Increasingly, in every aspect of life, people eat and drink on the go. People with coeliac disease are only too aware of the health risks involved with eating food containing traces of gluten.
The aim for the Coeliac Society of Ireland’s Eating Out Pledge is to ensure that gluten free food is stored, prepared, cooked and served in a manner which offers confidence to both the consumer and the operator.
What is the Pledge?
The Eating Out Pledge is a combination of an on-line Gluten Free Training programme provided by Coeliac Society of Ireland, and a Declaration of gluten free standards, signed by the business. When the training has been completed by the minimum people required and the signed declaration returned, the Coeliac Society of Ireland register the business and issue the Eating Out Pledge certificate and window sticker.
The business will also feature on the Coeliac Society of Ireland website, and ezine.
