Ever-evolving food laws and legislation means there’s more to food management than being a dab hand in the kitchen. New food labelling laws which came into effect in December 2014 mean that all food and drink outlets across the EU, including the UK, must show on demand any ingredients containing allergens.
To support hospitality businesses, new BHA business partner Kafoodle has devised user-friendly software which connects kitchens with consumers, offering food and drink outlets the ultimate future-proof solution for all food management needs.
Providing restaurants with access to real-time menu information straight from its database of Kafoodle Kitchen ingredients database, the system offers peace of mind in light of the new legislation. What’s more, the Kafoodle mobile app and website allows businesses to set their own preferences and create menus in line with their customer’s choices and allows customers to eat with more confidence.
Kim Antoniou, Founder and CEO of Kafoodle says: “Kafoodle allows businesses of all sizes to easily manage and report on ingredients and their allergen content, offering business as usual with peace of mind. Our mantra is ‘don’t stress, cook’ and our new app will allow restaurants and food outlets to do exactly that.”
Ufi Ibrahim, Chief Executive of the British Hospitality Association says: “New allergen legislation means it is now the customer’s responsibility to tell the food business which ingredients they are allergic to and the food business must be able to provide information on which foods being served contain that allergenic ingredient. This puts a legal responsibility onto the business and all its employees.
“The BHA is a real advocate of any guidance and advice which supports businesses in the minefield of understanding allergens, and welcomes tangible tools which free up food outlets to focus on the real task at hand, which is to offer exemplary food, ambience and customer service. The BHA is delighted to welcome Kafoodle on board as a new business partner.”
