Company Nutrition Polices & Product Formulationion
Our member companies aim to offer consumers and shoppers a range of products and services that support the goals of healthier diets and lifestyles through a number of different initiatives. This includes making nutrition policies public, undertaking product formulation and/or reformulations to ensure that the composition of product portfolios evolve with the scientific evidence that support national and international dietary recommendations, working on serve sizes, and labelling (see separate page).
