Containing a database of over 4000 ingredients, plus hundreds of set recipes and menu plans, the K2N programme (Key to Nutrients) helps caterers prepare nutritionally balanced and healthier dishes.

Colin Birchall, managing director of Country Range Group, said: “There’s a greater emphasis placed on caterers today to prove the nutritional value of meals. The Public Health Responsibility Deal, for instance, has been launched for businesses and other organisations to improve public health issues and tackle health inequalities through their influence over factors like food consumption. K2N is an added level of service to enhance our member’s customer offer, which is of real value to caterers.”

In addition the K2N programme features a stock management system, cost and pricing control tools plus a full diary management system, allowing caterers to monitor individuals’ nutritional daily intake – a feature designed with care homes and schools in mind.

K2N is available from August 2011 exclusively for Country Range Group customers.
