Food data platform Erudus has announced a slate of new integration partners who will help extend the reach of their accurate, up-to-date nutritional and allergen product information to even more Caterers and Retailers affected by the newly implemented Natasha’s Law.
The new legislation, which came into effect on 1st October 2021, applies to all Pre Packed for Direct Sale (PPDS) food products and brings labelling under particular scrutiny. This new group of Erudus API integrations boasts in-depth labelling expertise, as well as covering both the commercial and public sector (specifically education campuses).
The new additions to Erudus’s Integration Partner roster are:
Civica – An IT based services partner in digital solutions, software applications, and managed services.
Cypad – A tech company that offers end to end cloud-based kitchen, cleaning and facilities management solutions.
Gen-Label – A one-stop-solution for food labelling requirements.
NCCO International – Products include ePOS system essentials, disposable food safety products, and intelligent labelling solutions.
Andrew Pond, Business Director of Civica says: “We chose to integrate with Erudus because of its reputation and how the data provided complements our end-to-end approach perfectly. This up to the minute source of verified supplier data will make it easier for caterers to demonstrate their compliance with legislation such as Natasha’s Law and the Food Information Regulations and support their customers in making safe menu choices. They’ll also be ready for the upcoming requirements to publish calorie information on their menus.”
A Cypad representative says: “With Natasha’s Law coming into effect we are seeing an increased demand from our Caterers for suppliers to provide accurate allergy and nutrition information for the stock items they provide. By integrating with Erudus, Cypad suppliers only need to update their stock information in one place – saving both themselves and the Caterer time and effort, and ensuring nutrition and allergen information is up to date.”
Alan Bryson, Head of Gen-Label, says: “Erudus offer the market a brilliant solution to ingredient data management. Any business looking to comply with PPDS legislation could save time and ensure allergy accuracy far more easily than using traditional data entry methods. Ingredient data is vitally important to the food labelling market following the introduction of Natasha’s Law and this data can be difficult to manage without a system designed to support the supply chain.”
Karl Rose, MD of NCCO international says: “The partnership between NCCO and Erudus allows both companies to better serve the wide selection of catering outlets that require a simple way to comply with Natasha’s Law, and more effectively protect the health and safety of their customers. Erudus will allow users of the NCCO DateCodeGenie to access and apply crucial health information directly to the labels they need.”
Jon Shayler, COO of Erudus says: “Natasha’s Law is a game changer for the food industry, and it means more businesses than ever need access to accurate allergen data for food products. At Erudus we have this data, and it’s our mission to get it in front of everyone who needs it, so integration partnerships such as these are crucial. Because not only do they help spread the reach of the data, they help customers use it in the most efficient and effective ways. Civica, Cypad, Gen-Label and NCCO International are all forward-thinking, innovative companies that we’re proud to align with, and share our passion for making the lives of those in foodservice easier.”
