New York City has mandated that any food item with value of 2,500 mg of sodium or greater (which is the recommended daily allowance for sodium) must display a designating salt icon on their menus and menu boards.
Most of the standard concession and hospitality food and beverage items will certainly not need to concern themselves with this new sodium regulation, however, in an attempt to be as transparent as possible The National Association of Concessionaires (NAC) is requesting all Supplier members to forward us their product information sheets that have determined the sodium content of your products. We will create a Sodium Database and make this information available to all NAC members behind the Member’s Area on naconline.org. We will compile the information and organize such in a format that will provide not just NYC members but all NAC Operators and Suppliers the information necessary for an intelligent customer choice.
Please forward such information directly to firstname.lastname@example.org at your earliest convenience.
