Dietary Codes and Labelling

The guide below will help you work out what you’re looking for when choosing from our meal ranges.
Please use our meal filter on the left of our website to allow you to filter meals based on your residents' or patients’ dietary needs.

We also use the well-known 'traffic light' system on all of our meals so our customers know exactly what they are eating.

It shows whether the meal contains low, medium or high amounts of fat, saturated fat, sugars and salt through traffic light colour coding.
