NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Olo, the leading digital ordering provider for over 180 restaurant brands across the U.S., is helping restaurant clients navigate new federal and local menu labeling requirements with new nutrition tools and support across its platform. Through Olo’s digital ordering platform, restaurant brands are now able to implement federal guidelines on ecommerce sites and mobile apps.
Nutritional tools in the new feature set include:
- Calorie Labeling - Ability to add calories in order to comply with new menu labeling requirements put forth by the Food and Drug Administration. Calorie amounts, ranges, and supplements for menu item additions are supported.
- Disclaimers - Ability to add both generic and FDA-specific disclaimers, also known as succinct statements and additional statements.
- Sodium Labeling - Ability to add sodium icons for items that are required to show items over 2300 mg in salt, as required in NYC.
Existing clients received access to Calorie, Disclaimer and Sodium tools earlier this month for implementation on their Olo-branded front ends or through a design partner for brands utilizing Olo's API.
Since menu labeling requirements often vary by location and menu, Olo’s platform supports configuration by location, with a tool to make changes to numerous locations at once or make changes across the entire brand.
Restaurant brands are currently conducting their own independent reviews of FDA menu labeling and calories, which impacts establishments with over 20 locations, ahead of the May 5 deadline.
Current Olo clients can get training materials, user guides, and more information here.
