Olo Debuts Enhanced Nutrition Tools for Digital Ordering Menus

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Olo,
the leading digital ordering provider for over 180 restaurant brands
across the U.S., is helping restaurant clients navigate new federal and
local menu labeling requirements with new nutrition tools and support
across its platform. Through Olo’s digital ordering platform, restaurant
brands are now able to implement federal guidelines on ecommerce sites
and mobile apps.


Nutritional tools in the new feature set include:

  • Calorie Labeling – Ability to add calories in order to comply
    with new menu labeling requirements put forth by the Food and Drug
    Administration. Calorie amounts, ranges, and supplements for menu item
    additions are supported.
  • Disclaimers – Ability to add both generic and FDA-specific
    disclaimers, also known as succinct statements and additional
    statements.
  • Sodium Labeling – Ability to add sodium icons for items that
    are required to show items over 2300 mg in salt, as required in NYC.

Existing clients received access to Calorie, Disclaimer and Sodium
tools earlier this month for implementation on their Olo-branded front
ends or through a design partner for brands utilizing Olo’s API.

Since menu labeling requirements often vary by location and menu, Olo’s
platform supports configuration by location, with a tool to make changes
to numerous locations at once or make changes across the entire brand.

Restaurant brands are currently conducting their own independent reviews
of FDA menu labeling and calories, which impacts establishments with
over 20 locations, ahead of the May 5 deadline.

Current Olo clients can get training materials, user guides, and more
information here.
