Spanish food & drink industry commits to a major pledge to cut salt, sugar and fat by 2020
The Spanish food and drink industry announced on Monday a far-reaching voluntary commitment agreed with the Spanish Department of Health to significantly reduce the salt, sugar and saturated fats content of more than 3,500 products over the next three years.
The plan (known as the Collaboration Plan 2017-2020) includes a 10% sugar reduction target for soft drinks without sweeteners. The press release is available here.
UNESDA is delighted to see that other national associations are committing to sugar reduction target which are in line with UNESDA’s pledge taken a year ago to reduce added sugars by a further 10% by 2020.
