F2. Salt Reduction (pledge now closed)
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 22 March, 2012
Greencore continues to achieve successful salt reductions since the salt targets were published in 2006 and are actively working towards the 2012 targets laid out by the Responsibility Deal salt pledge.80% of our products sold in retail already meet the 2012 Responsibility Deal salt targets and this already includes our fresh soups, sauces and prepared meals. Development will continue to drive this progress where acceptable technical solutions allow without compromising current food safety and quality.We will endeavour to meet the agreed salt targets for retail products where possible, but there will be a number of areas within some categories which will remain particularly challenging. We will continue to work with our suppliers and customers to address these issues and seek out acceptable technical solutions, where possible.
