Research into clean label sugar reduction
New targets, the sugar levy and consumer demands present major challenges for our industry. Alternative ingredients and
modifying processes can be difficult. This new project, will review and explore clean label and processing solutions to optimise reductions
without affecting product acceptability or functionality and investigate portion size and consumer choice.

Sugar reduction is a hot topic as government targets and consumer demands change
The challenge many food businesses face is the need to review their product labels to bring them in line with the
redevelopment of existing lines. In this webinar, Ruth Price (UK/EU Harmonised Regulatory Affairs Manager), will explain the impact of sugar
reduction on food labelling.
Upskilling the baking industry to help meet the sugar reduction targets
By 2025, it is predicted that the UK food and drink industry will need 130,000 new skilled workers to meet demand and
replace retiring workers. The baking sector is a vitally important part of the food manufacturing industry and in the UK is a £3 billion industry
and employs over 20,000 people. With potentially so many vacancies, it’s essential that bakery industry takes action to tackle the issue of
skills and training.
Clean label sugar reduction
This project aims to take an alternative approach by understanding how far sugar can be simply removed before product
quality is compromised to an unacceptable level or functionality is lost and the need arises to intervene via the use of clean label and/or
processing solutions to optimise the level of reduction that can be achieved.
