Bidfood creates tools to help caterers navigate Natasha’s Law
The legislation, which came into effect on 1 October 2021, saw eight out of ten businesses still feeling unprepared.
Bidfood has been working on providing a range of support tools: MyRecipes, Menu Planning and the Matt85 labelling system, which will save customers time and money.
Samantha Elliott, nutrition and allergen manager at Bidfood, said: “Now that it has been a few months since Natasha’s Law was implemented, businesses are expected to be fully compliant and we wanted to reiterate the support that is available to our customers. These tools are a way to save customers time and money whilst providing them with the peace of mind they need.”
MyRecipes and Menu Planning can be accessed via Bidfood’s online shop, Bidfood Direct. The tools allow customers to create their recipes and menus based on their agreed product range and pricing.
One of the benefits of these tools is their clarity, offering clear and easy to understand allergy icons, nutritional data and front-of-pack nutrition traffic light labelling information, which can be used to create a label for your pre-packaged recipes.
The Matt85 uses a cloud-based software to print labels at your convenience and uses heat technology so there’s no need to worry about ordering ink. You can have everything you need to sell your pre-packaged foods in just five simple steps.
