How it works

All eligible businesses will receive a diagnostic with the Food and Drink Innovation hub to best determine how our team can help. Once needs are assessed, businesses will be able to submit up to six of their recipes used in their business for analysis. Our team can help you with guidance based on the results of the nutritional analysis process, including ways to reduce salt, fat, and sugar content if required. Businesses will receive a detailed declaration that contains a breakdown of their recipes as well as bespoke traffic light symbols to download and use for their food product labelling.
