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


Thursday, 27th April 2017


Central London



Delegates at this conference will discuss the next steps for reducing sugar consumption in the UK. It takes place in light of the recently published policy paper on the Soft Drinks Industry Levy ahead of new legislation being introduced in the Finance Bill 2017 as set out in the Government’s childhood obesityplan. The agenda is being structured to facilitate discussion on 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.
