Some say why is nutritional data important as I do not legally have to display it.
Nutritional data can be a step to far for some, the worry of using and displaying the correct information, the hassle of reviewing it and ensuring it is still up to date. Will it scare my customers away? Will it reduce the menu to just a salad? The fact is, that by displaying the nutritional values of your food you are actually increasing your customers choices and giving them the tools to make decisions.
In this consumer world where diners are more aware of their food intake, why would you not want to display the full macro nutrient value of your dish as well, so your customers have the full picture. At the scan of a QR Code all this information and more, is readily available, with no costly reprints if you decide to change the recipe because there is a ‘hip’ new ingredient available that you wish to incorporate in the reworked dish.
With the use of the CaterCloud QR code feature on your menus, your diners can see the collective macro nutrients by portion or 100g – you decide, you can even show it as a % of the RDA for each macro nutrient if you wish, giving you the confidence and peace of mind that the information is as up to date as your current recipe as well as the allergens contained in the final dish.

The addition of dietary tags also shows that you have taken your diners needs in mind and are trying to make them feel inclusive and welcome to your restaurant.
There is no need for you to worry or stress about researching food values as CaterCloud has a database of 1,000’s of ingredients fresh, frozen and ambient, working with carefully curated lists, and national and local suppliers. CaterCloud is the perfect partner for all your food information and if we have not logged the item there are several easy options to get the information in to your store cupboard and the CaterCloud team are by your side ready to help via live chat (real people), email or phone.
Add into the fact that the current UK Government have been discussing the addition of nutritional values on all menus for the past few years surely now is the time to get ahead of the game, especially as CaterCloud is FREE to use and does a lot more than measure the nutritional profile of your dishes.
