Nutritics acquires innovative accessibility menu solution Good Food Talks - find out more →

Market-leading foodservice tech provider, Nutritics, has completed the acquisition of Good Food Talks, an innovative menu solution for visually impaired diners, which counts Nando’s, PizzaExpress and JD Wetherspoon among its customers.

The company provides a fully accessible menu solution that makes it easier for blind, visually impaired and dyslexic diners to independently browse the menu on their chosen device and make their own choices, alongside enabling food businesses to publish a universally accessible menu with no extra effort.

Used by customers across over 2,150 sites, the solution could benefit almost 10 million people, with 340,000 people in the UK having no sight, 2 million overall with sight loss, and 10% of the population affected by Dyslexia. Good Food Talks was founded in 2013 by Matt Wadsworth, who is himself blind.

Commenting on the acquisition Stephen Nolan, CEO of Nutritics, said; “Good Food Talks is an amazing example of how hospitality operators can use technology to be more inclusive and provide visually impaired customers with the opportunity to enjoy the same experience, through a simple, easy to use solution. Accessibility and inclusion is a very real challenge for businesses and we’re delighted to be working with Matt to further his ambition to improve the dining experience for the visually impaired community around the world.”

Matt Wadsworth added; “I’ve received several approaches over the years to sell the business, however, as much as I passionately believe that Good Food Talks needs to be in every hospitality business, it had to be scaled with the right partners. The team at Nutritics are incredible and share the same drive to make good food available to everyone. I’m very excited for the opportunity ahead and very much look forward to continuing to lead the business from within the Nutritics family.”

Good Food Talks is the second acquisition completed by Nutritics, after the business acquired the menu publishing technology Ten Kites in 2021. Since then, Ten Kites has grown significantly, with revenues growing by 3x over the period. Nutritics helps hospitality and foodservice operators run safer, more sustainable, and more profitable operations in over 100 countries.

Its existing suite of solutions is used by over 3,000 hospitality businesses in the UK and Ireland and includes Foodprint, a fully automated environmental impact scoring system which helps hospitality and foodservice businesses analyse, manage and report on their Scope 3 emissions. Last year, Nutritics was chosen by COP28 as the exclusive software provider to help create climate-friendly, nutritionally balanced menus at the global sustainability conference.
