Spotlight on Recipe Reformulation in Scotland
Dr Colette Backwell, Director of the Scottish Food and Drink Federation (SFDF)
For just over a year, the Scottish Food and Drink Federation (SFDF)'s new
Reformulation Programme has been helping small and medium-sized food and drink
businesses in Scotland, who are the core of our industry, to improve the
their product ranges.
Under our innovative programme, which is funded by the
Scottish Government, companies receive tailored recipe change advice from
Industry Technical Manager. In September 2012 the Scottish Government announced
further two years' funding for the Programme in recognition of the important
role it can play in spreading best practice across the industry.
SFDF and our
members are committed to playing our part in the improvement of public health
tackling the challenges of overweight and obesity alongside government and
SFDF's Reformulation Programme
The Scottish Food and Drink Federation
(SFDF)'s Reformulation Programme is a
free service providing small to medium
sized food manufacturing businesses in
Scotland with tailored advice to help them
reduce the fat, salt and energy content
of their products.
Funded by the Scottish
Government, this service helps businesses
which typically do not have significant, if
any, technical new product development
resource or reformulation experience.
Updating recipes is one of the ways that
manufacturers are helping consumers to
lower their energy intake and consumption
of these nutrients to improve public health.
