NFFF Launch Nutritional Testing Scheme!
Welcome to Perfect Portion – www.perfectportion.co.uk (an NFFF Microsite) and the launch of the NFFF Perfect Portion Nutritional Testing Scheme.
Everyday, consumers are becoming more aware of what they eat. Traceability, sustainability, quality and nutritional values of food are increasingly important in the choices they make for themselves and their families.
As part of the Europe wide tackling obesity initiative, it has been a legal requirement to display nutritional information on pre-packaged food items since 13 December 2016, and a Cabinet row was sparked recently over a draft consultation seeking calorie labelling for restaurants, cafes and takeaways.
The Perfect Portion website has been designed to guide fish and chip shop owners through the best practice techniques that can help to reduce the calories in their products, with guidance on oil management through to frying temperatures and ultimately to portion control.
Alongside the Perfect Portion website, the NFFF is also
launching its nutritional testing service.This enables you to have your products tested to find out how many
calories are in your menu items, along with the fat, carbs and protein etc so
you can compare with other popular takeaway foods. Our introductory price list and details of
the tests we offer is shown below. This
is a member benefit service and a discount
of £50 off each test is available to NFFF members only.

Why nutritional testing is important for me?
"In an age in which consumers are dining out more often, I think it's important to display nutritional values to give our customers confidence in the products they're buying, and to help them to choose healthier options if they wish. Displaying nutritional values can also fend off the bad press fish and chips all too often gets, as we all know, when cooked correctly fish and chips provides less calories and saturated fats and more vitamins and minerals than other takeaway foods.”
