From September to December 2018, the government consulted on requiring businesses in the out-of-home sector, for example, restaurants, cafes and takeaways, to display calorie information on the food and drink they sell.
The government’s response, published 27th July, confirms that it will introduce mandatory calorie labelling for large businesses in the sector (businesses with 250+ employees) along with other details about the policy.
Making calorie information visible when eating out or getting a takeaway will help people to make healthier food choices for themselves and their families.
