Enabling Innovation: Healthier Options Takeaway – Newark & Sherwood and Mansfield

21 January, 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm

Nottingham Trent Uni logo

Exploring ways that take-aways can offer healthier choices to their customers, whilst keeping great quality and taste. In collaboration with Nottinghamshire County Council, this event will be led by an NTU expert. Furthermore, it will explore ways in which businesses might reduce salt, fat, and sugar in their dishes.

What’s on offer?

Offering healthier choices to customers doesn’t have to mean compromising on flavour or pushing up costs. This workshop will focus on simple, easy to implement ideas that aim to meet HOT guidelines. And, at the same time, maintaining the great taste and quality that your customers have come to expect.

The workshop will comprise a series of short sessions covering:–

  • Fat reduction
  • Salt reduction
  • Sugar reduction
  • Portion control

What is HOT?

In short, HOT stands for Healthier Options Takeaway. This merit scheme is run by Nottinghamshire County Council together with District and Borough Council partners. Basically, we’re aiming to increase the amount and variety of healthier options in takeaways across Nottinghamshire in order to help consumers to maintain a more balanced diet. Find out more.
