A London based online company is providing the UK food and catering industry with an essential service, which has been created to specifically address the new EU food legislation set to become enforceable during December 2014.
Known as the 'Food Information for Consumers Regulation', the legislative change will heavily impact on any person, company or organisation whose business involves the selling of food which is not pre-packaged. The legislation will directly affect the catering and hospitality industries including restaurants, canteens, schools and care homes.
Due to come into force within the UK on December 13th 2014, the 'Food Information for Consumers Regulation' will require anybody selling or serving prepared food to clearly warn customers if any dish on their menu contains one or more of the fourteen major food allergens covered by the new legislation, which includes gluten, crustaceans, molluscs, fish, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, soybeans, milk, celery, mustard, sesame, lupin and sulphur dioxide.
Having already identified the considerable impact of the change and vast numbers of businesses who are not yet aware of their future legal obligations, 'MenuAnalyser' now provides a professional service which offers clients an analysis of the nutritional content found on their menus.
The service not only identifies menu ingredients which fall within the scope of the 'Food Information for Consumers Regulation', but also provides extended nutritional information which can aid portion costing, waste reduction and more efficient ordering for the client's business.
'MenuAnalyser' is a web-based service created specifically to provide a way for the Catering and Hospitality Industry in the UK to carry out detailed nutritional analysis of the dishes caterers put on their menus.
