Commitment to health & nutrition

Commitment to health & nutrition
Brakes has maintained a health and nutrition department since 1985 and now as a team of nutritionists in the Brakes Group with over 40 years experience. This investment in health and wellbeing means nutrition is embedded in all aspects of the company through information and advice to customers, training for staff and our long-term food strategy. We are committed to taking a leading position in the foodservice sector to help improve the health of consumers through a wide range of food and menu solutions.

Brakes is the first in foodservice to offer a range of specially developed healthier foods, and our Healthier Choices range adheres to strict nutrition criteria. This has been extended to include our Smartcrumb range of non-fried, coated products. These criteria are in addition to the high product standards that apply to all Brakes brand products.

We have a database with nutrition, ingredient and allergen information for over 600 Brakes brand products and have provided nutrition labelling for over 15 years. This nutrition information is now available to view through our online product list.

Our nutrition expertise is valued by customers in all sectors of foodservice and we offer particular advice to school caterers, those working in healthcare and caterers trying to meet nutritional standards in staff catering or any setting where their food contributes significantly to the consumer’s diet.

Health and nutrition is now one of the pillars of our corporate social and environmental responsibility programme.
