The proposed changes announced (if fully implemented) will have a significant impact on all food outlets, as all food and drink companies will see a consultation on the introduction of "clear, consistent calorie labelling" on menus in restaurants, cafés and takeaways. This will for the smaller operators be challenging, for the chain operators less so; but the direction of travel is clear. Technology will undoubtedly be the answer, with menu planning and calorie / allergen programmes, with support required from the supply chain.
Our trade body UK Hospitality are urging the government that we should allow independent operators to be exempt! as small cafes and street food operators will find these regulations if enacted very difficult.
