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.

Since I started working with Jaimie Meisner, early 2017, she has been very knowledgeable, proactive, and a pleasure to deal with. She is very responsive to our needs, and changing parameters. If she is out of the office, there is a ready back up or she makes time to respond directly. She did a very good job assessing our culture and understanding our environment before she searched for candidates. To date, she has helped us fill the following roles:
Manager, Food Safety & QA (US and Canada)
Plant Supervisor (US)
Director, Product Development (Canada)
Maintenance Mechanic (US)
Regional Sales Manager (US)
As well as 2 other senior roles that we put on hold (General Manager, North America; Director, Procurement).
It has been a successful partnership to date, and I expect/hope to have Jamie as my go to recruiter for many years to come.
