Sugar reduction targets for food products in the United Kingdom (UK) 2015-2020

This statistic illustrates sugar reduction targets for different food categories set by Public Health England (PHE) in the United Kingdom (UK) in 2015, August 2017 and a forecast target for 2020. PHE suggested three different ways in which the food industry could tackle sugar content, starting with reformulating their products, reducing portion size and by encouraging shoppers to consume more sugar free or low-sugar products. The government has challenged the food industry to cut sugar content by five percent by August 2017 and twenty percent by 2020. If targets are met, this is equivalent to removing 200 thousand tonnes of sugar from the market every year up until 2020.
