New Targets for Salt Reduction

Public Health England (PHE) last week issued new targets for salt reduction across 28 broad product categories, which are then split into 83 subcategories, 7 of which are new since the 2017 targets. The targets vary by category with some not moving.

They have also split some categories out, such as pizza, which now has 2 targets – one for cured meat topped products and a lower target for other toppings.

The targets are set to be met by 2024 with reporting on progress in 2022. Members can find the targets by following this link:

If any member wishes to discuss concerns about the targets, then please contact the Federation as we are happy to communicate your concerns or observations to PHE.

We will also be discussing this topic during our next Technical Expert Group meeting in October, so please feel free to send deniserion@bfff.co.uk any points you wish to raise by the end of September, should you wish them to be included.
