Digital Menu Boards: The solution for meeting upcoming FDA requirement
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) Menu Labeling Requirement Act will go in effect on May 5th, 2017. This is bound to put some huge pressures on food establishments as this legislation requires any food service operation with 20 or more locations to have calorie counts and other nutritional information included in their menus.
Operators of quick serve restaurants, delis, c-stores, and fast casual restaurants will all need to find ways to get calorie counts on menus and keep them updated and accurate. The easy and obvious answer is to go digital!
“Digital signage is not the only way to meet the regulation set forth by FDA but it is the most efficient and effective. Be careful don’t trade one issue for another. Make sure when it’s done it’s backed by a strong Content Management System (CMS).” explains Ifti Ifhar, CEO of ComQi “The demand for digital signage is on the rise and, since its takes time to rollout, food service operators should be starting now to select a solution and get it properly deployed.”
