Diverse and healthy menus

Control your dietary management by letting Menutech seamlessly calculate the nutritional composition of diaries and track your patients’ dietary intake against reference values, so you don’t have to. You can also see if your offering follows a five-a-day diet and if each meal includes at least two bread, cereal, or carbohydrate products.

The fastest way to prepare food menus for your school or kindergarten

Automated creation of Weekly menus

  • Focus on content, not design: simply add dishes and beverages to your menu. Menutech lays out your menu for you in the chosen or uploaded design: it is instantly ready for print and online sharing.
  • Avoid repetitions: You are immediately alerted when the same dish was added to a previously written menu (e.g. "Lasagne was served 2 days ago”).
  • Search, copy and modify previously written menus: all your menus are stored for future reference.
  • Never type anything twice: All dishes (including their allergens and nutritional values) are saved for next use.

Automated Allergy-friendly and Free-from menus

  • Allergens are automatically detected as you type dishes onto your menu, without having to manage recipes.
  • Allergen icons can be displayed directly onto your menu or on a separate allergen table. The allergen table can be exported in just one click.
  • Special diet icons are easy to add (e.g. vegan, gluten-free, without pork, etc.). All dish and menu information is saved for next use.
  • Export a “free-from” version of your menu in just one click (e.g. hiding all meal options containing lactose).

Automated updates for Students' Families

  • Refresh weekly menus automatically without having to re-upload PDF files or re-enter URL links. (e.g. every Friday at 5PM, the menu of the next week is shown on the website and sent to parents).
  • Personalise menus based on students’ dietary preferences (e.g. Menu with highlighted gluten-free options sent only to families with a child suffering from a gluten allergy).

Take your school's meal planning to the next level:

More than 30 customisable menu templates

Be 100% transparent with your food and ingredients: Allergen and special diet icons are clearly labelled on menus.

No installation required

The software is easy to use for canteen managers, teachers, kitchen and administration staff.

Keep families up to date

Share the latest menu with students' families. You can have the menus automatically sent via email or integrated onto your website. The daily and weekly menus update by themselves, meaning families always see the latest version of your menus.

Export multiple menu designs for different displays

Your menus can be printed for the cantina and the main hall, and digitally published on an intranet or website or sent as an email attachment or text. This provides you with both legibility and flexibility, whilst avoiding to prepare menus on a per-display basis.

Centrally manage students' dietary preferences

Check your menu planning for missing options (e.g. “gluten-free option is missing on Thursday"). Export sub-menus that are personalised to specific diets, food allergies and intolerances. Menutech is the safest way to prepare allergy-friendly menus for your students and pupils.

Optimise your recipes

based on cost, profit margin and nutrition values, using Menutech’s state-of-the art optimisation algorithms.
