We Asked, You Said, We Did

Here are some of the issues we have consulted on and their outcomes.

We Did

Professor Steven Schwartz AM has now submitted the final report to Minister Hunt following completion of the Review. The report will be considered by government and a plan for public release will be developed. There is no fixed date for the release of the report available at this time.

We Asked

We asked for feedback, supported by, evidence on draft food category definitions and reformulation targets for sodium, sugars and saturated fat.

You Said

Submissions were detailed and included specific points for clarification, as well as suggestions for amending targets, and identifying potential risks and challenges associated with a nutrient reformulation program. Thankyou for this feedback.

We Did

The Reformulation Working Group (RWG) is currently considering all submissions and a report summarising these and the RWG's recommendations is being prepared. Work is continuing on summary reports for sugars and saturated fat targets.  Further targeted consultation on categories in which a significant change is proposed will be undertaken.

 The RWG will finalise the reformulation targets in two stages –

Stage 1 - A recommendation about food categories with only a sodium target.

Stage 2 - Consideration of targets for saturated fats, sugars, or sodium plus sugars/ saturated fat.

Keep an eye on the Healthy Food Partnership website for updates.
