Local chef says putting calorie counts on the menu will cost businesses thousands of euro

HeadChefAlanFoleyThe head chef of a local Restaurant says putting calorie counts on menus will cost businesses 5 thousand euro.

The cabinet have approved proposals that will require all restaurants, fast-food outlets and cafes to supply calorie information for all items on the menu.

It’s aimed at encouraging people to choose a healthier option.

However, Alan Foley from the Stephouse Hotel in Borris says there’s more important things to work on than displaying the amount of calories in our food.
