Understanding HFSS rules and how retailers can prepare

The UK Government’s proposed introduction of new legislation targeting high fat, salt and sugar products is currently in consultation, with an expectation that it will become law in October 2022. The changes will limit promotional activity and in-store merchandising locations for categories including soft drinks, confectionery, treats, beverages, crisps and snacks. Retailers and brands alike are facing new challenges and uncertainties to which both must quickly adapt.
