Campaigners urge UK government to legislate on salt reduction
17 May 2018 --- Campaign group, Action on Salt, has criticized a new Food and Drink Federation (FDF) report that highlights the food industry’s reformulation work to reduce sugar but claims cutting salt is not being given enough attention and urges the government to step up legislation.
Commenting on the new FDF report and its lacks of focus on salt, Campaign Manager at Action on Salt, Sonia Pombo pushes for salt legislation.
On its “Feeding Changes” report, the FDF says that over the last five years members have also reduced energy in the average basket by 5.5 percent.
It also says that during the lifetime of the latest salt targets (2012-2017) FDF’s members have reduced salt content by a further 11.4 percent, continuing to build on more than 15 years of steady reformulation work.
