Impending changes to labelling regulations for food producers means we have been looking to provide a sandwich labelling nutrition software for our customers. As of December 2016, food producers manufacturing pre-packed foods must add nutrition data to their sandwich labels.
The regulations will cause a huge amount of work for food producers needing to calculate nutrition data. Recognising the need for sandwich labelling nutrition software, we have prepared a project to build exactly that.
Our managing director John Mayers said:
“The objective is to devise a computer-based system that integrates with a spreadsheet to allow small businesses to accurately label nutritional and allergy data on their food and sandwich labels. This system will ensure correct ingredient, nutritional and allergy information is incorporated on food labelling. It will serve consumers by providing accurate labels and protect firms from the potentially damaging consequences of mislabelling.
In early January 2013 ‘The Food and Drink iNet’ awarded Positive ID Labels a grant to help us develop and produce our system as they recognise that is exceptionally useful for a variety of Food companies.
The Food and Drink iNet, which is run by trade organisation The Food and Drink Forum and encourages and supports innovation in the East Midlands food and drink sector, has awarded the project £10,000 towards its £30,500 cost.
Food and Drink iNet director Richard Worrall said;
The Food and Drink iNet is pleased to support this innovation at Positive ID Labels. It is an excellent example of an established company using innovation to develop and grow, while at the same time filling what it sees is a gap in the market in the food and drink sector and benefiting a good number of smaller manufacturers.
Our managing director John Mayers responded by saying;
“We are very grateful for the support from the Food and Drink iNet, who have given us a grant towards our project.”
The project is now live and the software available for sale via or website. Our Nutridata nutrition calculation software was launched in October 2016 and can be bought directly from our nutridata website shop.
