Digital Menu Publishing is a new window into your kitchen compliance

How is your business preparing for the next wave of allergen labelling rules? With the food business under wage pressures, rising ingredient prices and an oversupply of competitors, any change in legislation presents new risks to your time and money.

Caternet, Powered by Zupa has launched a new allergen management application that stops the kitchen guesswork, supports compliance, and serves information to diners – both before and during their visit. Caternet Menu Publishing is a single solution combining a recipe builder with Ten Kites’ tool to publish allergens, sub-allergens, and nutrition data, live, onto virtually any digital channel.

What is a recipe engine?

Recipes built with live supplier data can truly transform your catering operation. Choosing this easy-to-use software means nutrition detail is automatically calculated. Allergens are tracked and cross-referenced, from supplier to serve, with the freedom for chefs across trading locations to create portion-controlled daily specials.

With bespoke recipe cards and bank of meal preparation steps, a digital record is instantly accessible to staff and customers alike. You can say goodbye to those clunky, out-of-date allergen folders.

More time to grow your business

The head office that adopts Caternet has chosen clarity over confusion. This paperless system extends to enforcing approved buying lists, purchasing with live prices, and margin control with no hidden discounts or rebates. Many organisations add their HACCP food safety analysis guidelines to Caternet to use in their kitchen training packs. Our forecasting tools save time and promote compliance across stock management too – from automatically calculated stock in hand prompts to planning in delivery schedules to minimise spend & wastage.

Publish and turn compliance into revenue

The new food labelling requirement is an opportunity to connect with customers and drive advance footfall. Guests can avoid bad experiences by planning with accurate menus delivered through digital displays, websites, online ordering apps and social channels.

Whether gluten-free, nut allergy, vegetarian, vegan, or halal, the drag and drop publishing tool takes your library of recipes and compiles them into useable menus. Add your design and logos to reduce marketing costs (and reprinting!). When diners reach your venue, EPoS and kitchen cookbooks share the same data. You can build brand loyalty and grow your cut of household spend.

“Combining these tools into a single solution for the first time ensures consistency. Accurate allergen content across multiple channels in real-time gives great peace of mind to modern hospitality businesses.” Mark McCarthy CEO at Zupa.
