British Takeaway Campaign launches health toolkit

The British Takeaway Campaign (BTC) has launched an online toolkit designed to help outlets across the UK respond to consumer demand for healthier options. The toolkit is based on best practice in the takeaway sector and consists of four simple and practical steps that most takeaways can implement.

The BTC is working with its members to encourage all takeaways to adopt the steps. The measures include offering smaller portion sizes; making sure water and low-sugar drinks are available; not adding salt after cooking; and using healthier cooking methods and ingredients.

BTC chair Ibrahim Dogus said: “We are launching the Takeaway Toolkit to support restaurants who want to respond to consumer demand for healthier options. We know many takeaway businesses have already made real progress and providing this support will help many more to do so.”
