A healthy start to 2015

In the wake of National Obesity Awareness Week's call for the nation to make a New Year's resolution to improve its health, we’ve been doing our bit to encourage colleagues to eat healthily.

In the wake of National Obesity Awareness Week's call for the nation to make a New Year's resolution to improve its health, we’ve been doing our bit to encourage colleagues to eat healthily.

Special lunches were hosted across our sites to help showcase how our brands can be used to make a range of easy to cook, healthy dishes. Premier Foods development Chef, Anthony Warner, said: “As a food company it’s important we teach our colleagues how easy it can be to eat healthily.”

With obesity on the rise in the UK it’s important we continue to work hard to provide our consumers and colleagues with healthier options. Over the last few years we’ve been supporting the Public Health Responsibility Deal, a government sponsored initiative to encourage a wide range of stakeholders to take voluntary steps to improve the nation’s health.

As part of our support, we have pledged to reduce further the amount of salt in our products by 2017 building on the hundreds of tonnes of salt we have already removed since 2011. We’ve also committed to reduce calories across one third of our portfolio through reducing the amount of fat and sugar and offering different sized packs and portions. We’re also introducing front of pack traffic light labelling highlighting the level of calories, fat, saturated fat, sugar and salt in our products to help consumers make the right choices for themselves and their families.

Here’s to a healthier 2015!
