Your Menu Represents Your Brand
…Are Your Menus Updated for the New FDA Law?
What exactly is required to be posted on menus and menu boards?
- Calorie information
- Succinct statement concerning suggested daily calorie intake
- Statement that written nutrition information is available upon request
Who is affected?
Consumers must now have access to calories on menus and menu boards for any chain restaurant with 20 or more locations, that do business under the same name. In addition, written nutrition information for all standard menu items must be available upon consumer request.
If it’s not a requirement for my restaurant, should I still think about making changes?
Because consumers will be looking for more details on nutritional information, all restaurants should consider providing this information as a competitive advantage. Transparency will continue to become more and more important to consumers.
