Calorie Labelling Legislation – How Kafoodle Can Help



What is the New Calorie Law?


Calorie information is mandatory for certain food businesses from 6th April 2022.


The government has introduced legislation making calorie labelling mandatory among food businesses (with 250 or more employees) in the out-of-home sector. In addition to helping consumers make healthier decisions, calorie labelling also encourages businesses to reformulate the food and drink they offer and provide lower-calorie options for their customers.

Businesses affected include: restaurants, cafes, takeaways, bakeries, caterers, supermarkets, hotels and workplaces.
