Sugar Reduction Awards

The Sugar Reduction Awards have been launched to recognise and celebrate the progress that has been made in sugar reduction in the UK. From public health and educational campaigns to academic research, manufacturer reformulation and new product launches, the Sugar Reduction Awards will highlight and celebrate excellence in sugar reduction across all sectors.

In addition to commending and applauding the progress taking place around sugar reduction, the Awards will also act as a showcase of best practice, bringing together the most innovative, exciting, forward-thinking and ambitious developments both in reducing sugar in our diets and through reducing exposure to sugar or increasing education on sugar consumption and the importance of sugar reduction.

Award entries will be on display at The Sugar Reduction Summit, giving the audience the opportunity to learn about the wide range of initiatives taking place across the UK, and providing a valuable resource and inspiration for all stakeholders working to reduce sugar consumption. The Sugar Reduction Awards gives entrants an invaluable opportunity to shine a light on the work they are doing and its impact and, where appropriate, to share stories of success which can be replicated or built upon.
