Event Details

This year’s National Salt Awareness Week will take place between 14th – 20th March, and will shine a spotlight on a simple yet effective approach that will improve our health – asking the food industry to shake their salt habit! 

Too much salt can harm our health, leading to unnecessary deaths from heart attacks and strokes. Salt reduction policies targeted specifically at the food industry are necessary and proportional: three quarters of the salt the UK eats each day is already in packaged and prepared foods. This cannot be removed by the consumer, so simply telling people to eat less salt will not work when our food is full of it.
