Dubai restaurants: Food Code will increase costs
Safety standards require eating outlets to clearly label allergens in menu
it would be better if the municipality can put up a link for consumers and restaurants which will have all the food code that the restaurant should be following. How do we know what is the food code aside from basic hygiene which everyone can see when they are served. Better for us consumers to have guidelines which we can base our selection of restaurant meals on daily basis. this would help us look out for F&B sectors that are not 100 percent safe to eat in. Post link please!

This won't increase costs significantly if it's implemented properly. More importantly it will improve FOOD SAFETY, so why should restaurant owners complain? Lower profits, perhaps?

How does changing a menu cost this amount of money? I could not get this clearly. Menu is just a piece of paper or cartoon that is usually printed. If you are giving menus for each delivery customer, does this mean that you have a big pile of menu for future use?

I dont see how a menu reprint can result in higher annual costs. I think authorities should clamp down on those who increase prices.

Unfortunately, we cannot believe restaurants owners at all & this story of the huge cost of changing menus. they want any reason to raise prices & actually their prices is the highest in the region! i wish that the authorities would put an end to any plot or plan by those people to raise their expensive prices!
