Food & Drink Resources (FDR) is able to manage restaurant menu development from A to Z. Starting with recipe innovation and finishing with nutrition labeling on your menus.

We know you may not need it all at this moment, but we’re guessing you do need the nutrition analysis to comply with the Food & Drug Administration’s upcoming menu labeling deadline — May 7, 2018. This is not the first time the FDA has promised enforcement of the rule, but it looks as though this compliance date will stand firm.

At FDR, we have Registered Dietitian/Nutritionist Stephanie Mattfeld Beaudette to oversee Nutrition Analysis and Labeling. Our chefs work together with Stephanie to re-formulate recipes, if need be, so you can count on a complete service.

According to the Food & Drug Administration rule, all restaurants with 20 or more units are required to include calorie labeling on restaurant menus and menu boards. There are a number of other facets to the rule we can assist you with, including (the following come directly from the FDA website):

  • which foods are subject to the nutrition labeling requirements and which foods are not subject to these requirements;
  • a succinct statement concerning suggested daily caloric intake (succinct statement), designed to help the public understand the significance of the calorie declarations;
  • requirements for determination of nutrient content of standard menu items;

Remember, the compliance date is May 7, 2018. Contact us to see how we can assist your chain restaurant meet the FDA obligation in time.
