Morrisons commitment to providing healthy choices includes both customers and colleagues. Our staff restaurants always offer a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables, ensure that water is freely available, and serve controlled, responsible portions.We have taken a range of measures to help reduce salt consumption, such as removing salt shakers from the tables and ensuring that vegetables and starchy food like pasta and rice are cooked without adding salt.We are looking to build on this with the roll out of a new menu in 2012, which will include calorie and nutritional information. Low fat and healthy option indicators will assist colleagues in making well balanced food choices.To support this initiative, we plan to engage our canteen colleagues through our professional 'M Kitchen' chefs. This programme will aim to educate our catering colleagues to promote healthier options with their colleagues.
