Compliancy doesn’t have to be a headache.
The new EU food labelling laws are here. That means that from the 13th December 2014, it’s vital that your food business acknowledges customers with allergies and intolerances.
There are 14 allergens, and traces of any must be labelled clearly. Restaurants and cafes, street vendors, and catering companies all have to comply, and if you don’t, it’s a £5,000 on-the-spot fine. It’s your responsibility to make the information visible and up-to-date.
We’ve swotted up on the EU food laws so you don’t have to.
A simple menu offers 10,000s of potential allergen entries, so we launched FoodTrade Menu, an automatic allergen labeller. With this tool, you can have a printed compliant menu in minutes, leaving you to concentrate on what you do best.
Every dish will be saved, fully customisable, and you can add information from other suppliers with just a click. Your menu can be modern or traditional, colourful or simple, or you can build your bespoke branded design. Then save it, print it, email it, or embed it. It’s your menu, we just want to show it off.
It’s an opportunity to showcase your best menu.
We’ve been building our global food map for nearly three years now (it’s searchable for everything from chocolate to charcuterie) and brilliant food business are found every minute by hungry customers. We want to get your food on the map.
By inputting your food into the compliancy tool, you’ll automatically add your menu and produce to our power food search engine. We’ll connect you with your suppliers, and you can find the best ingredients from what’s around you. You can even showcase your sustainability with local supplier lists and provenance maps. This means more customers walking through your doors.
We’re ready for the next round of EU food regulation changes so you don’t have to be.
Compliancy is dull, but we won’t let allergens get the better of you. In fact, we know there’s more regulations coming just around the corner – nutritional information and food origin – but that’s not for you to worry about – we’ll always keep your compliant menu fresh.
From less than a tenner, you can have full confidence that whatever’s coming next, you’ll stay on top the game. Find out more at www.foodtrade.menu
