Lowering the salt whilst maintaining the product quality
The population are currently consuming more salt than the recommended 6g per day*. Too much salt in the diet has links to some scary things, like heart disease and high blood pressure. For this reason we have been gradually reducing the level of salt in our products for a number of years, to benefit the health of our customers, whilst ensuring our products are of the highest quality and still taste great.
Here are some highlights of our hard work:
Reduced the amount of salt in our red pesto recipe by 60%
Removed over a tonne of salt from our three risotto pouches, with an average of 40% less salt per variant
Reduced the amount of salt in our tomato ketchup by 28%
