Healthy Catering Commitment

You may have seen some of your local restaurants and takeaways displaying the award for the Healthier Catering Commitment.

Food outlets displaying this logo have been recognised for:

  • demonstrating a commitment to reducing the level of saturated fat and salt content in their foods;
  • offering some healthy options (for example, lower sugar drinks and snacks); and
  • making smaller portions available on request.

Most catering businesses (with the exception of schools, nurseries, care homes and hospitals that have specific nutritional guidelines) are eligible to take part in the scheme provided that the business has good hygiene standards.

Join the scheme

If you are a local business and would like to get involved, email publichealth@richmond.gov.uk.
