On the 3rd December 2009, the Food Standards Agency (FSA) launched a consultation on the provision of calorie labelling at point of choice in catering outlets.

The FSA has been working with the catering industry to introduce voluntary calorie labelling at the place where people choose their food. Over 20 companies agreed to provide calorie labelling on this pilot in some or all of their outlets during summer 2009. Consumer responses and business impact has now been evaluated and the FSA has developed five proposals for a voluntary calorie labelling scheme in order to encourage increased voluntary adoption of calorie labelling, in a consistent manner, across the catering industry.

The BNF response to the consultation can be found below:

Last reviewed March 2010. Next review due December 2013.
