            Understanding the Food Information Regulations - Food Service Menu 

            EU law requires food service businesses to ensure their products and menus are labelled with specific information with regards to nutrition, composition, advertising claims and more.

            DWF has produced an interactive food service menu showing the key areas to consider to remain compliant. As always the devil is in the detail of the Regulations, they need to be reviewed fully to determine how the specifications impact your product.
