International Markets

In response to growing demand from the UK, Canada and Australia, SelectWisely customers can now order food translation cards over the internet and have those cards shipped to over 60 countries worldwide. Recent web site enhancements now enable SelectWisely to accept international credit cards and shipping destinations.

New Languages

Customers with food allergies and food restrictions can now order cards in Japanese, Swedish and Thai, which brings the total number of languages that SelectWisely offers to fifteen. In addition to foreign travel, the same cards can be used in local Japanese or Thai restaurants when ordering meals.

Restaurant Cards in English

The new Â┬ôRestaurant Card in EnglishÂ┬ö is for individuals with serious food allergies who need to communicate their concerns to wait and kitchen staff in local restaurants.

Focus group testing on this card has been very positive.
