FDF members are committed to ensuring people have access to a wide range of food and drinks that can support a balanced lifestyle.

We know more needs to be done, which is why manufacturers continue to take bold steps. Reformulation, new product development and portion sizing are key actions. FDF members’ voluntary work is already delivering substantial changes to UK shopping baskets, reducing salt, sugars and calories. For more information view our Industry at a Glance stats.

We also believe achieving balance is about much more than what is cut from our diets; increasing fruit, vegetables and wholegrains is also important, as is physical activity.  In 2021,  FDF launched its 'Action on Fibre' initiative to help bridge the gap between fibre intakes and dietary recommendations.  

Tacking obesity is an important public health initiative, but work by manufacturers alone will never be enough. We call on Government to provide help to those communities and individuals who need it most.
