40 SEPTEMBER 2017 FOOD & INDUSTRY NEWS >> The Jamie Oliver Food Foundation and food charity Sustain have launched a new campaign calling on independent restaurateurs to reduce the amount of sugar customers consume. Said Jamie: “Restaurants, cafés and caterers are a key sector given their ability to set trends and influence what people want to eat and drink.” In Brighton and Hove, the first city to launch and pilot a Sugar Smart initiative, there are now over 100 independent restaurants and cafés taking action to reduce sugar. Other restaurants all over the UK are implementing a voluntary sugary drinks levy to dissuade customers from having sugary drinks and contribute to the Children’s Health Fund. Their contributions have allowed the fund to give grants totalling £148,000 towards improving access to drinking water and providing meals during holidays for children.
