Voluntary nutritional code to be introduced soon

The code would see restaurants display nutritional information on menus

The restaurant industry may soon be the subject of a new voluntary code encouraging eateries to display the nutritional information associated with dishes on the menu.

A government source told that such a move is being considered by the coalition and it is expected to be formally unveiled in the near future.

Data such as calorie counts would be shown by restaurants that choose adhere to the code, which has been born out of research by the Food Network, part of the Responsibility Deal that aims to give businesses a say in government policy changes.

"We are currently working to secure voluntary agreements from the food industry to commit to out-of-home food labelling in 2011 as part of the of the Responsibility Deal Food Network's work programme," a spokeswoman for the Department of Health told the hospitality sector website.

Demand in the foodservice sector is set to rise on the back of an increase in visitors to the UK for the Olympics and other major events, Oksana Higglesden of People 1st stated recently.
