A recent report has uncovered that a new law that asks for introduction of calorie counts at all restaurants in is being criticized by restaurant owners on many grounds.
It is being doubted that the law might get destroyed with a large number of condemnations being faced by it for several factors, including costs of implementation and regulation of the parctice.
While, the new law had been planned by the Health Minister with an aim to reduce the rates of obesity cases and curb inadequate eating habit of people. The restaurants have been claiming that mentioning of calories on menu would be difficult, especially for local hotels and hostels.
The reason behind the same is the regular change brought by them in their menus. It is being said that it would be almost impossible to bring in a new food with calorie count each day.
Another complaint is being made regarding the costs incurred by the enforcement of the law. The Restaurants Association of Ireland (RAI)’s chief executive Adrian Cummins says that the already weak industry cannot manage €110m additional expenditure by each restaurant.
"The move will cripple the restaurants industry at a time where revenues are 20pc down on 2011, and one restaurant a day is closing", he added.
