Menu Analytics was formed to support the needs of food service institutions as they respond to customer inquiries about the nutrition information of their menus, and seek to comply with the FDA menu labeling requirements that were to take effect in May of 2018. Our mission is to provide food service establishments with accurate nutrition information about their menus, and to guide them through their efforts to communicate this information to their food service customers.
