JJ Food Service has agreed to offer cafes, restaurants, pubs and canteens in Brighton a 10% discount on “healthier eating” options via the local council’s Healthy Choice scheme.
Group general manager at JJ Food Service Terry Larkin said, “The work we recently did in London with the Healthier Catering Commitment had positive results for everyone involved, so we are delighted to extend the offer to other regions to champion the healthier eating message.”
The discount will apply to fresh fruits, vegetables and lower-calorie soft drinks, snacks, cereal bars, rapeseed oils and some gluten-free, vegetarian and wholegrain options.
Healthy Catering Project Officer for Brighton & Hove City Council, Harriet Knights, said: “Healthy Choice supports food outlets to prepare, cook and serve food in a healthier way and those that do can apply for a free Award. We’re always keen to provide outlets in the city access to food and drink products that make it easier for them to promote healthier eating to their customers”.
Healthy Choice is a joint initiative between Brighton & Hove City Council and the Food Partnership and the scheme is open to all outlets serving meals registered in Brighton & Hove with a Food Hygiene Rating score of three or above.
