Ever-changing Menus Stay Current & Compliant
La Madeleine Country French Café, an established chain of casual bakery cafés with 60 locations across the country required development of nutrition and ingredient information for their menus and product labeling to ensure compliance with food labeling regulations for restaurants and retail.
Management of nutrition and ingredient information for menus and product labels for a large food service organization takes continual care and attention to detail. As La Madeleine introduces new menu items, refines recipes and alters ingredients, they need a solution to stay abreast of changes and ensure continued label and nutrition information compliance. In addition, unique state and local regulations have required special attention to ensure 100% compliance.
La Madeleine executives called on Food Consulting Company given their nutrition and regulatory reputation and expertise in the industry. Food Consulting Company quickly created the nutrition and labeling information for all menu items and product tags. From baked goods to beverages, they managed the nutrition analysis for all items and prepared Nutrition Facts and Ingredient Statements for packaged food products. To comply with specific state and local regulations, Food Consulting Company also created label components and reviewed final artwork for inclusion on printed menus and product tags. In addition, it was important to ensure that La Madeleine stayed current with their compliance when changes were made to food items. Food Consulting Company initiated a process to review all new and modified recipes and products on an ongoing basis, acting as the company's virtual food labeling department.
As a result of the work Food Consulting Company performed and their ongoing review, Management has peace of mind that its ever-changing menu and food products are consistently 100% compliant with all labeling regulations, despite nuances in several key markets. Internal reviews continue to be most positive: Food Consulting Company is an invaluable partner as they consistently deliver their work on time and with a very high level of accuracy.
"For a company like ours that does not possess the knowledge or experience in food labeling and menu labeling compliance, Food Consulting Company made a complicated process easy for us to follow and to keep current."
