FI Network: about the «Reformulation Series»

Amsterdam / NL. (ubm) In response to increasing consumer demand and proposed government legislation for lower levels of sodium, sugar and fat in food and drink, Food ingredients, the world´s leading organiser of business networking and professional development events for the F+B industry, has put together a technical conference series focusing on the latest developments around sodium, sugar and fat reformulation.

Following Nestle´s pledge to further reduce salt levels across its food brands worldwide to meet a WHO target of a five grams of salt per person per day by 2025, Henri-Pierre Lenoble, Nutrition, Health + Wellness Manager, Nestle Food will explain their decision to meet this target and address the realities of further salt reduction, from cost implications to technical barriers and healthier consumer products and choices.

And with Tesco asking all its suppliers to remove added sugar from children´s drinks, David Beardmore, Category Buying Manager for Soft Drinks + Juice at Tesco, will discuss how they plan to work with manufacturers to implement this strategy and overcome the technical challenges that will be faced.
