Setting Diet Types

To restrict users from being able to select Stock Items with conflicting Diet Types the Diet Type tab [1] contains a check list of dietary restrictions for cultural or religious purposes e.g. Halal.

Legacy Conflicting Diet Types

When an existing client is moved to the new Diet Type logic a script will be run to identify and edit any conflicting Diet Types. The script will be forced to remove the least impactful Diet Type i.e. if a Menu Item is set to Suitable for Halal and Contains Pork then Halal will be removed to minimise the risk of a Menu Item that contains Pork being made available to a Muslim student

Conflicting Legacy Diet Types:

  • Suitable for Halal + Contains Pork
  • Suitable for Vegetarian + Contains Pork and, or Contains Beef
