TuckIN scheme for takeaways

'TuckIN' is a scheme for local takeaway food businesses that want to show their customers they offer healthier choices.

Businesses that join TuckIN must pledge to:

  • lower the sugar, salt and fat content of their food
  • use lower saturated fat oils and spreads
  • use healthier ingredients
  • allow their customers to choose smaller portion sizes

In return for signing-up and qualifying for the scheme, businesses get:

  • £100 of vouchers that can be used to pay for our Level 2 food hygiene courses
  • advice visits from a member of the TuckIN team
  • free online nutrition training
  • free advertising on the TuckIN website
  • promotional materials
  • a TuckIN certificate

Go to TuckIN – Making Food Better for more information.

The TuckIN scheme is being run by Environmental Health teams in Essex to encourage healthier lifestyle choices.
