Calorie information to be put on menus

16th January 2009

The Food Standards Agency has said that it wants cafes, pubs and restaurants to display nutritional information on their menus.

The FSA is involved in discussions with 50 of the biggest food chains about the move with several already signed up and hopes that calorie labelling will start this summer. The move follows a FSA survey of 2,000 people which showed that 85% were in favour of catering outlets displaying nutritional data. The FSA said there is no reason why such information should not be available when eating out.
