The Department has engaged with a wide range of stakeholders, including the food and drink industry, on proposals for restrictions on the promotion of high fat, salt and sugar products. We have been careful to consider the views of industry through two consultations and extensive engagement throughout the development of the regulations. The final impact assessments on the proposals to restrict the promotion of foods high in fat, salt and sugar by location and by volume are available at the following link:
