The fastest way to prepare menus for your Health facility

A menu is a live document: Menutech helps you review and update menus regularly in order to continue to meet the dietary needs of a potentially changing patient population.

Automated patient menu design and export

  • Plan your weekly meal offering with Menutech’s easy-to-use online software including automated allergen declaration.
  • Analyse the diversity of your meal offering: Menutech alerts you if meals repeat themselves during the week and if free-from options are missing.
  • Set up meal allocation rules to generate patient menus (e.g. “Patient A receives Gluten-free options only” or “Patient B receives meal options under 200 kcal only”).
  • Use your own menu designs: Menutech automatically layouts the final result in print-ready PDF, ready for print and digital publishing. Each menu is individualised for each health facility.

Centrally managed food & beverage information

  • Quickly add and edit dishes and beverages in your personal database. All changes are synchronised across all menus and displayed in real time.
  • Enjoy access to our public database of 16,000+ dish translations and 5,000+ dishes with declared allergens.
  • Synchronise your menus on websites, intranets, online portals and order-taking softwares. Define automatic send-off rules and keep all digital displays always up to date.

Recipe management, cost optimisation and Free-from menu generation

  • Generate free-from menus and insure a meal planning in line with your client’s specific dietary needs.
  • Manage ingredients and recipes for your dishes and generate recipe books in a single click. All your food information is centrally available for your patients and medical staff.
  • Optimise the costs of your recipes (incl. setting your total budget per patient per day/week), reach target nutritional values and analyse the diversity of your meal offering to maximise patient satisfaction and profitability.

Advanced Menutech features

Take your health facility’s food & beverage planning to the next level:

  • Centrally manage your patients dietary preferences and organise them in categories of your choice (e.g. “Nutritionally vulnerable”, “Nutritionally well”, “Special or personal dietary needs”, “Maternity patient”, “Children 1-16 years”, “Requirement for a therapeutic diet”).
  • Create special accesses to certain aspects of the menu writing process (e.g. Translator access can’t modify meal options).
  • Run stress tests. Calculate the highest and lowest energy content of food choices for the midday and evening meals for a sample of random days over the menu cycle; Check if your offering follows a five-a-day diet; Check if at least two bread / cereal / starch items at each meal.
  • Refresh daily, weekly or monthly menus automatically without having to re-upload PDF files or re-enter URL links. (e.g. every Sunday at 5PM, the menu of the next Monday is shown).
  • Multi-location support to dynamically generate menus for each facility, based on previously defined rules.
  • Multiple integration available, synchronised live or on-demand. PDF, HTML, JSON, XML or custom protocols are offered thanks to our universal integration concept.
