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.

CPA were recommended to us back in 2012 after a challenging recruitment project came our way. Not only were they able to source us a talented Innovation Manager in a difficult location, this project was brought to a successful close within the timeframes we needed. Since then, CPA have sourced three new members for our team and they are all still happily with us. They clearly have expertise knowledge of the NPD market and bring a professional and focused approach to the most challenging of recruitment briefs.
