Westminster Food & Nutrition Forum

Implementing policy on sugar reduction - reformulation, consumer choices and regulation

May 2017

Delegates at this conference discussed the next steps for reducing sugar consumption in the UK. It took place after the Finance Bill 2017 was approved, which introduced legislation on the Soft Drinks Industry Levy, as set out in the Government’s childhood obesity plan. The agenda discussed implementing the sugar tax, working with consumers to drive behaviour change, and overcoming the practical challenges to reducing sugar content - including discussion on portion size, labelling and reformulation.

Shortly after every Westminster Food & Nutrition Forum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
