Central Foods makes it easy to comply with new calorie labelling requirements

Central Foods is highlighting the company’s practice of providing full nutritional

information on all products as new calorie labelling requirements come into force

From April 6th 2022, all businesses in the out-of-home sector, including fast food and takeaway outlets, with more than 250 employees will need to display calorie information for non pre-packed food and drink.

They are required to display accurate calorie information to customers at ‘the point of choice’ including on menus, websites and food ordering apps.

Central Foods, one of the UK’s leading frozen food distributors, provides full nutritional information for every product, including calorie information, on outer case labels and on product specifications.

This ensures that caterers can quickly, easily and reliably fulfil their legal obligation for this new legislation.

“We are committed to customer service and hope that our practice of providing full nutritional information on every product will make life easier for our customers as this change comes into effect,” said Gordon Lauder, MD of Central Foods.

Central Foods is one of the leading frozen food distributors in the UK, supplying a range of products to the food service sector. Its brands include Golden Valley Foods poultry products and the KaterVeg! vegan and vegetarian range.

The company was founded more than 25 years ago and is proud to be a catering partner for takeaways and fast food operators across the UK.

“We work hard to source and offer high quality products that we know will meet the latest consumer trends,” added Gordon Lauder.

Northamptonshire-based Central Foods currently sells to more than 240 independent wholesalers, as well as larger national and regional wholesalers
