Mitie Catering Services Ltd provide food and beverage services to staff restaurants and cafes in public and private sector organisations across the UK. They also provide hospitality services, vending, staff shops and produce fine dining at some client premises.We are currently working on a project which involves redeveloping our "grab and go" offer, not only the product itself but also the packaging and labelling which will include a specific section where the calorie content per portion can be displayed on the front of the pack. This is currently in the trial stages and small changes are still being made to product specifications hence the nutritional analysis is on going. Upon receipt of the finalised product specifications they will be analysed using a nutritional software program, the calorie information will then be exported for input onto the product label itself.Once this project has been tested, in the early stages of 2012, any changes will be made and then the offer will be rolled out to contracts that offer a "grab and go" range as part of their contract, UK wide.Following the successful implementation of this project, we will then look to develop the calorie labelling for our menu boards to cover our daily specials. Finally we will concentrate on our hospitality menus which will not take place until the end of 2012/beginning of 2013.The reference information in regards to GDA's will more than likely be displayed in a poster style format in a suitable space within the restaurant area and may also be available on the internet for customer download.
