Food Allergy Policy

At the British School Jakarta we take food safety very seriously and have a robust policy in place regarding food allergens.

  • Parents are required to inform the school Medical Center if their child has a food allergy

  • Our Medical Team regularly updates our catering services with the names of all children who have a food allergy

  • Catering services are required to know which children have an allergy and to which food

  • Food handlers are aware of the hazards from the use of potentially severe allergens

  • All food containing one or more of the common food allergens must be labelled/identified clearly when serving

We are a nut-free and shellfish-free campus:

  • Nuts, shellfish and any products that contain them may not be included in any dishes served at BSJ, nor are they allowed in food brought from home

HALAL  food service:

Unless clearly labelled, all food served at BSJ is Halal.

If pork is served, dishes must labelled Non-Halal. Likewise, if pork or pork products are served, the kitchen staff must use the equipment and utensils strictly dedicated for that purpose during preparation, cooking and serving.
