Which? response to Kellogg’s announcement on introducing traffic light labelling

Sue Davies, Which? Strategic Policy Adviser, said:

“Which? believes the traffic light nutrition system, which helps people compare at a glance how much sugar, salt and fat a product contains, is an effective way of helping them to make healthier food choices.

“While this is a very positive move from Kellogg’s, it should apply to all the brand’s products sold in the UK and Ireland, not just 80% of them.

“The Government should now use Brexit as an opportunity to introduce legislation that makes traffic light labelling mandatory as part of an approach based on high food standards and aimed at boosting the nation’s health and well-being.”
