Sugar reduction:

Despite disruption to our sugar reduction strategy, in late 2019 we had managed to reduce the

sugar in products such as our Everyday Favourites Coffee & Mandarin Gateau, Triple Chocolate

Gateau and our Chocolate & Orange Gateau by an average of 20%. In addition, at the start of

the year we had managed to reduce sugar in our Everyday Favourites Carrot Cake, Coffee &

Walnut Cake and Victoria Sponge Cake by an average of 31% and also our Ready to Bake

White Chocolate Cookie Dough and Double Chocolate Cookie Dough by an average of 15%.

Overall, since the start of our strategy, we have launched 42 own brand products which have

been reformulated to reduce their sugar contents.

Allergens and intolerances:

The whole conversation around allergens and

the call for greater clarity on allergen labelling

has topped the headlines on many occasions

over the last couple of years, sparked by

tragedies that remind us how life-threatening

allergens can be.

By October 2021, all foods pre-packed for direct

sale (PPDS) will have to label its packaging with

the full ingredients and emphasise the allergens.

This is an attempt to protect the country's two

million food allergy sufferers.

The technical guidance for prepacked for direct

sale (PPDS) foods was issued in the latest

update of the Food Standards Agency's Food

allergen labelling and information requirements -

technical guidance in June 2020.

As stated in the technical guidance, 'Every FBO

in the food supply chain is responsible for

ensuring that the allergen information they

provide is accurate'.

At Bidfood, we take the management of allergen

information very seriously.
