The Food and Drink Federation (FDF) has deemed the launch of the Government’s consultation on plans to restrict promotions of food and drink products high in fat, sugar and salt (HFSS) as “grossly insensitive” and a “monumental distraction”.
Public Health England (PHE) has urged the food industry to meet the challenge of sugar and calorie reduction programmes, as nine in 10 members of the public back Government intervention to make food healthier.
British sugar growers will struggle to compete with their European counterparts if Associated British Foods (ABF) does not continue to invest in the industry, the National Farmers Union (NFU) has warned.
We know that foods high in fat, salt or sugar (HFSS) have been under closer scrutiny since the new restrictions on advertising came into effect last July. However, two major companies have recently been caught out.
