Sheffield, United Kingdom - Fretwell-Downing
Hospitality To LaunchLatest Version of Saffron at Restaurant Show ~ New developments to
the Saffron menu planning software, enabling restaurants to check their
menus for up to 15 different potential food allergens, will be unveiled at
this year’s Restaurant Show (12th-14th October). Catering software
specialist, Fretwell-Downing Hospitality (FDH) will be introducing the next
generation of the software, offering even greater food allergen reporting
alongside the nutritional analysis, menu planning and costing capabilities
of Saffron Nutrition ...
Nigel Adams, FDH’s sales executive explains the reasons for
the developments: “There is growing interest within the trade to be able to
flag up on menus, or steer customers towards those dishes that are ‘free
from’ certain potential allergens. Often, it will be a person with a food
intolerance or allergy that will be the decision-maker among a group of
diners on where to eat, so there can be a wider impact on restaurants.
“This new generation software will be much more
user-friendly and comprehensive in its allergen reporting, particularly
when you consider that some of those restaurants that have already gone
down this route only list up to nine potential allergens. Saffron’s
allergen reporting will also include the other foodstuffs that can cause an
allergy such as celery, sesame seeds and lupin,* providing greater
flexibility for restaurants and food suppliers.
“The enhanced allergen reporting will sit well alongside the
other developments we have made to the software, including its ability to
nutritionally analyse recipes and report the composition as a series of
traffic lights denoting whether a particular nutrient is present in high,
medium or low percentages.”
FDH will be showcasing the new developments to Saffron
Nutrition on stand H28 during the Restaurant Show.
