Convenience Store News In Brief…

Mars Food has announced a new global Health and Wellbeing Ambition to create and promote healthier food choices and encourage consumers to cook and share healthier meals with others. The Health and Wellbeing Ambition will roll out over the next five years and will focus on five main areas: improving nutritional content; providing consumers with more nutrition information to help them make more balanced choices; inspiring consumers to cook and eat healthy meals with friends and family; exploring new formats and opportunities to offer products in more places at affordable prices; and providing Mars Food associates opportunities to improve wellbeing through nutrition education, cooking facilities and healthier food options. Through the Health and Wellbeing Ambition, Mars Food says it will help consumers differentiate and choose between “everyday” and “occasional” options. To maintain the authentic nature of the recipe, some Mars Food products are higher in salt, added sugar or fat. As these products are not intended to be eaten daily, Mars Food will provide guidance to consumers on-pack and on its website regarding how often these meal offerings should be consumed within a balanced diet. The Mars Food website will be updated within the next few months with a list of “occasional” products—those to be enjoyed once per week—and a list of “everyday” products, including those to be reformulated over the next five years to reduce sodium, sugar or fat. Mars Food will improve its nutritional product composition through the reduction of added sugar and sodium and the addition of vegetables and whole grains across its global product portfolio…
