HOTELIERS WARN AGAINST ANY MOVE TOWARD 
MANDATORY CALORIES-ON-MENUS SCHEME

The Irish Hotels Federation (IHF) today stated that it would oppose any attempt down the line to introduce mandatory labelling of calories on menus in hotels and guesthouses. Commenting on a series of recommendations by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI), Michael Vaughan, President, IHF, welcomed the voluntary nature of the proposed scheme but expressed concerns that it could be transformed into a mandatory system once the introductory phase has been completed.
