Wegmans Marches Ahead with Menu Labeling

 Calorie counts to appear on menu boards

The FDA may have postponed the menu labeling rule that was to have taken effect May 5, but Wegmans is going ahead with its plan to post calorie counts on menu boards in its Pizza Shop, Sub Shop and The Buzz coffee bar as well as on signs in the bakery near bulk items like muffins, bagels and doughnuts. The chain already provides such information on signs near its self-serve hot and cold food bars and on package labels for grab-and-go items.

“Our company has always believed that customers have a right to product information, and this FDA regulation is in keeping with steps we’ve already taken at our own initiative,” said Wegmans Nutrition and Product Labeling Manager Jane Andrews. “We want to give customers tools they can use to make informed decisions about what they’ll eat and what’s the right portion size for them personally.”
