The pursuit of health is driving widespread innovation across the food manufacturing industry. It is an excellent point of difference. Consumer insights show that making health a priority enhances your reputation and positions your brand for the future.

75% of the salt in the Australian diet comes from processed and packaged foods, and consumers are eating almost double the daily recommended intake. Developing products that are as healthy as possible but also tasty, competitively priced and safe, is no simple matter. But a growing number of companies in Australia and world-wide are proving it can be done.

To help and inspire more companies to improve the nutritional content of their products and reduce salt, we are engaging with food manufacturers and collecting the best case studies we can find.
