The Marketplace Keeping you up-to-date on new products and services within the foodservice industry MACPHIE MEETS DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH SALT GUIDELINES >> Food ingredients company Macphie has announced that its branded product portfolio now complies with the salt targets set by the Department of Health. The action on salt has evolved since early discussions in 2003 following a report by the Scientific Advisory Committee (SACN) on the impact of salt on our health. Research suggests that reducing salt intake by just 1g per day prevents 4,147 premature deaths, saving the NHS £288million each year. Paul McKnight, senior research and development manager, said: “There has been significant core investment from Macphie as the salt targets have evolved over the years. Since 2007, an estimated 430 tonnes of salt have been removed from the Macphie product portfolio.” Premier joins Food for Life Supplier scheme >> Premier Foods has announced that it has joined the Soil Association’s prestigious Food for Life Supplier Scheme.
