Meeting Description:

How the right distributor can make or break your menu labeling efforts

As a foodservice operator, you put a lot of trust in your distributor. You trust that they’ll get your orders delivered on time, that they will have fair pricing, and will provide plenty of variety in the products that they offer. However, did you ever stop to think about their impact on the nutritional information of your menu items? Working with your distributor to ensure that product substitutions don’t screw up your menu labeling efforts is a crucial step in ensuring you’re staying compliant. Join our team as we show you what to look for when picking the right distributor, and how to use that relationship to your advantage.

Topics covered: Nutritional differences in products, allergen differences, cross-contact in manufacturing and menu labeling certifications
