Epicure Digital Systems, a leader in digital menu boards, presents the Epicure Digital NutriLive™ Nutritional Menu Labeling System for Digital Menu Boards at the NACUFS National Association of College and University Food Services Annual Conference Showcase at the John B. Hynes Veteran’s Memorial Convention Center, Boston, MA. 12-13 July 2012, Booth #715.
At the NACUFS Conference, Epicure Digital will present the Epicure Digital NutriLive™ nutritional and sustainability menu labeling system that allows food services to easily control and present nutritional values, information for customers with special food and nutrition needs, and creative ways to highlight special food items. These nutritional labels can display as nutritional data, nutritional scoring, and icons representing food groups, healthy choices, allergens, vegan, vegetarian, local and organic and others.
"The trend in food service is to provide more nutritious and healthier food choices," said Harvey Friedman, president and founder of Epicure Digital Systems. "Now the challenge is to educate students to choose these healthy items from locally grown produce. By creatively combining our easy-to-use Epicure Digital NutriLive™ nutritional and sustainability menu labeling system with motion graphics and food photography, Epicure Digital produces visually compelling multimedia menus that help students make informed choices."
The Wildflower Cafe in the new 866,000 square foot Elmhurst Memorial Hospital offers healthier food choices and is the latest addition to a growing list of institutions serving up tasty, nutritious meals. When the Hospital decided to implement the Epicure Digital Menu Board System, "the plan was to offer more selections of food, healthier, and more cooked-to order food", said Dave Reeves, Director of Hospitality Services at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital. "Each food station features a wide-screen LCD Epicure Digital Menu Board displaying its menu with nutritional data for calories, protein, carbs, sodium, fat, saturated fat, trans fat and cholesterol. We wanted to display the nutritional content of our menu items so our customers would make the best menu selections for their individual needs. The Epicure Digital system accomplishes this,” explained Mr. Reeves.
