McDonald's franchise to provide calorie labelling in all restaurants

According to a report published on the website, caterersearch.com, the Department of Health has announced that McDonald's is to introduce calorie information on all menus in all of its UK restaurants. The article reveals that McDonald's is making this move as a result of its commitment to the calorie labelling pledge as part of the Responsibility Deal.

In an interview, Jill McDonald, chief executive and president of McDonald's UK, said, “In March we announced our intention to extend the communication of nutritional information to our customers to include displaying calories on our menu boards across the UK. This move, as part of the Public Health Responsibility Deal, supports the principles we believe are important: giving our customers clear information to help them make decisions that are right for them and provide a choice on our menu.”

Other companies to sign up to this pledge include KFC, Pizza Hut, Pret A Manger and JD Wetherspoon. (kbp)
