Event details

In collaboration with Nottinghamshire County Council, this event will be led by an NTU expert, and will explore ways in which businesses might reduce salt, fat, and sugar in their dishes.

Offering healthier choices to customers doesn’t have to mean compromising on flavour or pushing up costs - The emphasis of the workshop will be on simple, easy to implement ideas that aim to meet HOT guidelines whilst maintaining the great taste and quality that your customers have come to expect.

The workshop will comprise a series of short sessions covering –

  • Fat reduction
  • Salt reduction
  • Sugar reduction
  • Portion control

What is Healthier Options Takeaway?

The HOT merit scheme is run by Nottinghamshire County Council and our District and Borough Council partners. Together we're aiming to increase the amount and variety of healthier options in takeaways across Nottinghamshire to help consumers to maintain a more balanced diet.

Speaker for the event is Jan Newnham, NTU Food & Drink Innovation Hub

Before joining the Food & Drink Innovation Hub in August 2017, Jan spent many years working in Product Development for a number of food and drink manufacturers including Adam’s Food Ingredients (now Ornua) and KP Snacks. She now works to support small businesses helping them to innovate and grow through the Enabling Innovation programme.
