Topper's Pizza Announces 100 Per Cent Compliance with New Ontario Standards For Healthy Eating in Schools

A healthy choice can still be an "amazingly delicious" one. That's the message from Topper's Pizza, a leading Ontario pizza franchise, in response to new provincial standards for healthy eating in schools.

"Schools across Ontario can be assured that a typical lunch size slice of Topper's cheese or cheese and pepperoni pizza either meets or exceeds the new Nutrition Standards for Ontario Schools in all categories, including protein, fibre, sodium, saturated fat and overall fat," said Emaan Toppazzini, Director of Product Development, Topper's Franchise Company Inc., which owns the Topper's Pizza brand.

After submitting a nutritional chart of pizza choices and slice sizes for review by the Ontario Government dietitian, Topper's Pizza was determined to be 100 per cent compliant with the new standards. The company's recently expanded menu also offers many healthier options, including multi grain crust, thin crust, gluten-free crust, turkey pepperoni and moderate cheese, all of which are available to schools.

"We achieved 100 per cent compliance without having to change any of our recipes," adds Toppazzini, noting that the family-owned business only uses real Canadian lower-fat Mozzarella cheese along with fresh meats and vegetables, and an authentic Italian crust prepared daily using a secret family recipe. "At Topper's, we support this healthier approach because we"�re parents too," said Toppazzini, noting that the company also makes its nutritional information available to consumers on its website.

In addition to offering a healthy choice menu, Topper's Pizza also supports education through fundraising support, school lunch programs, literacy programs, organized tours and more.
