The proposal to develop an Out of Home Strategy for Scotland was included in the recently published Scottish Government (SG) Diet and Healthy Weight Delivery Plan, which sets out a package of actions designed to help people make healthier choices, change their eating habits and live healthier lives.
The measures proposed in this Food Standards Scotland (FSS) consultation aredesigned to complement and contribute to the actions encompassed within the SG Diet and Healthy Weight Delivery Plan. Responses to these measures will help inform the development of recommendations.
In line with the Scottish Dietary Goals, caterers, manufacturers and suppliers across public, private and voluntary sectors will need to consider and adopt a number of different types of measures which are primarily focussed on the reduction of calories, fats, sugars and salt.
FSS is therefore consulting on proposals to improve the Out of Home environment which will help inform FSS’ recommendations to Ministers on the development of a Scottish Government Out of Home Strategy. As part of on-going strategic development, FSS will undertake business impact assessments on the elements of the Strategy
