At some point, you may start considering whether or not to invest in Nutritional Analysis for your catering business. Since nutritional labelling software comes with heaps of added benefits, chances are you’ll discover that the benefits largely outweigh the cost, and it’ll be worth every penny spent.
These days consumers are more vocal about their wants and needs and one thing they want is to know exactly what’s in the food they consume.
This could be for many different reasons, such as diet-related or health concerns. They want to know about things such as the number of carbs, salt content, possible allergens, if the food is organic, locally sourced, etc. And your company is responsible for providing them that information.
If the nutritional Analysis is done in-house, it helps you to control the quality of all processes and to be able to provide accurate information to consumers.
Changes can happen very fast and at any time. Especially for companies operating globally, it is vital to be able to have immediate and continuous access to the software they need so that any necessary changes can be applied and adaptations made instantly. This helps to prevent any delays when it comes to marketing products.
Adequate nutritional information software promotes growth and innovation. It may open new doors to unrealised possibilities, it’s good for brainstorming and realising the potential of future products.
Regulations are forever changing and ensuring that you are steadfast compliant is not always that easy. Having an accurate paper trail allows for transparency should you ever endure an Audit. Without it, it may be challenging to prove that you took appropriate steps to comply; it would certainly be complicated to try to do this without updated software acting as evidence on your behalf. Good quality software will always apply changes to regulations automatically, keeping you up to date, one step ahead while making life easier.
High-quality software enables fast and easy collaborating and communications with other departments. This could be in-house communications or even remotely. Not only that, it allows you to use reports obtained from the software for collaborating with management teams and professional presentations.
If your company only has a couple of products, it might be more advantageous for you to outsource analysis and label creation. However, when your product line starts to grow, the most cost-effective measure is to bring the analysis in-house.
