The Sugar Reduction Summit: Industry, Regulation and Public Health is now in its third year and has established itself as the leading authoritative event on sugar and sugar reduction. It is a unique one day, high level policy led event which brings together industry, policymakers, public health professionals and the health and wellness communities providing an invaluable opportunity to discuss changes the latest scientific evidence and impending changes to the regulatory environment and their anticipated impact on the consumption of sugar.
Delegates will have the opportunity to explore key issues in reducing sugar including; how sugar consumption has changed in the past 12 months and how the sugar tax announcement impacted purchasing, whether the 5% target is realistic and what would need to change to get us there, whether there is an opportunity to follow the US and separate added and total sugars on labels, what the impact of the sugar tax will be and how its design will be critical in achieving any impact – and indeed whether it will pass through legal challenges, what we can learn from how other countries have managed voluntary food industry targets and what we’ve learnt from the UK Responsibility Deal.
