Compass in Scotland, part of Compass Group UK & Ireland, has committed to working with the Scottish Government to support the voluntary commitments set out for caterers in its industry-wide framework, Supporting Healthy Choices.

Health and wellbeing is at the very heart of Compass Group UK & Ireland and the business has taken a series of innovative steps over the last few years to help millions of consumers choose healthier lifestyles. As well as rolling out nutritional labelling, helping over 6,000 colleagues learn about health and wellbeing and leading the way in reducing the amount of salt and saturated fat in its food, the company has also invested over £1m in systems to analyse recipes and menus.

Moreover, their Know Your Food programme – a platform created by Compass to inform consumers about healthy living and sustainable sourcing – is helping to champion healthy eating throughout the foodservice industry.

Wilson Barrie, Chair of Compass in Scotland, said: ‘As caterers, we have an important role to play in helping and encouraging people to eat a healthy, balanced diet. Our achievements to date, both in Scotland and across our wider business, demonstrate our ongoing commitment to providing information that helps our consumers maintain a balanced diet.

‘We welcome initiatives which keep health and wellbeing at the top of the agenda, and we’re looking forward to working with the Scottish Government to take the Supporting Healthy Choices framework forward.’
