British Food Retailers Pledge To Help Consumers Choose Healthier Foods

March 15, 2011: 08:34 PM EST
The seven largest food retailers in the U.K. have committed to a list of government promises to provide healthier food choices to the country’s consumers. The food retailers – Asda, Marks & Spencer, Morrisons, Sainsbury's, Tesco, The Co-operative Group and Waitrose – are all members of the British Retail Consortium (BRC). The pledges on food and alcohol form part of the Public Health Responsibility Deal coordinated by the Department of Health and led by Health Secretary Andrew Lansley. One of the promises is to provide similar calorie information for food eaten out that is already provided for food in the home. In addition, retailers promise to increase unit awareness on alcoholic drinks and to expand funding of local alcohol programs.
