The Food and Drink Federation’s (FDF’s) members have reduced the amount of sugar and salt in an average consumer’s basket of shopping over the past five years, according to a new report.
Published today (Monday 14 May), the report – Feeding Change – found that sugars in an average grocery shop had fallen by 12.1%, while salt had dropped by 11.4%.
The FDF attributed the reductions to 15 years of work in reformulating food and drink products, as well as limiting portion sizes and innovation into healthier options.
Katie Halliwell, FDF head of UK diet and health policy, said the report provided a snapshot into the work the organisation’s members had done to improve the nation’s diet.

I wanted to take a moment to express how happy my company and I am with Kelci’s and the services of CPA. Earlier this year I was very frustrated. I had engaged my regular recruiter in seeking an engineer with a background in agriculture. (Not an easy task.) After 3 months he had not been successful. I found Kelci on LinkedIn and contacted her. The first thing she insisted on was coming here and seeing my plant. (She was the first recruiter I have worked with who did this.) She wanted to know what the working environment was like here. From there she began her search and within 6 weeks I had my engineer with a background in agriculture. I then turned to her this fall to assist in finding me a maintenance supervisor. She provided me with a number of outstanding candidates and we have just been notified that our number one candidate has accepted our offer.
Kelci is now my “go to recruiter.”
