Dubai: Food establishments in Dubai should declare in their menus the calorie content of all ready-to-eat food items, Dubai Municipality has said in a circular last Saturday.

The new rule is applicable to restaurants, cafeterias and cafes with more than 5 branches from November.

All other restaurants, catering establishments and hotels should implement it in the second phase in January 2020, the civic body said in a press release on Saturday.

There are more than 18,000 food businesses in various categories according to Dubai Municipality.

.On Sunday a new QR Code system was also launched by the Dubai Municipality which will allow you to choose food based on hygiene and safety in Dubai-based food outlets. Under this system, Dubai’s Food Safety Department will issue smartphone-readable codes to food outlets through its “Food Watch” digital platform. It will be mandatory for food outlets to display the QR codes in their premises as and when they are issued one.

In the next phase, people will be able to see what kind of a license is issued to an outlet. So, if somebody is making cakes or taking up catering services, you can ask for the code and find out if they are licensed to do it. Accessibility, location, web address, contact details etc. are the other details of food outlets available through QR code scanning. Dubai Municipality’s hotline number to register complaints 800900 is also shown.
