UKHospitality responds to latest PHE food targets

UKHospitality has responded to the Government's new calorie and salt reduction targets for eating out and takeaway businesses, announced by Public Health England.

UKHospitality Chief Executive Kate Nicholls (pictured) said, “The hospitality sector has been supportive and proactive in helping to provide healthier choices and nutritional information for customers.

'We continue to support the objectives and will never absent ourselves from such well-intentioned pursuits, but the timing of these announcements, with the country still in the grips of a pandemic and hospitality businesses struggling to stay afloat, rather sticks in the craw.

“Never have the burdens threatening the existence of hospitality businesses been more acute – this is not the time to throw petrol on the fire.”
