Removing food contining artificial trans fats is a part of the 'Balance' programme.Our artificial trans fats removal focus to date has concentrated on specifying in our tender documentation that all products must be free of artificial trans fats. Almost all of our suppliers have already removed artificial trans fats from their products and the vast majority of our purchased foods are free from artificial trans fats.Action PlanOur purchasing team will check any outstanding products that have not yet been confirmed as free from artificial trans fats. If any of these items still contain artificial trans fats we will de-list these products and source suitable alternatives. We will continue to specify on all our tender documentation that procured foods must be free of artificial trans fats.
