Action on Salt

Companies signed up to Responsibility Deal

The Responsibility Deal included three key food related pledges - out of home calorie labelling, salt reduction and trans fat removal. 

The salt reduction pledge states:

"We commit to the salt targets for the end of 2012 agreed by the Responsibility Deal, which collectively will deliver a further 15% reduction on 2010 targets.  For some products this will require acceptable technical solutions which we are working to achieve.  These targets will give a total salt reduction of nearly 1g per person per day compared to 2007 levels in food.  We recognise that achieving the public health goal of consuming no more than 6g of salt per person per day will necessitate action across the whole industry, Government, NGOs and individuals."

As part of Action on Salt's pledge, we acted as an independent monitor of the food industry progress by continuing to survey major product categories in UK stores. We also had regular meetings with food companies to encourage them to sign up to the pledge. Click here to view our response to the launch of the Responsibility Deal: .
