Webinar

Understanding the HFSS promotional location regulations: Are you in scope?

New Regulations on the placement of foods high in fat, salt and sugar (HFSS) will come into force on 1 October 2022. With the implementation date fast approaching we partnered up with leading trade bodies, the Food and Drink Federation and the British Retail Consortium, to provide guidance through a webinar to help businesses prepare.

The webinar provided guidance on:

  • Whether your business will be liable

  • Clarifying the scope of the regulations

  • How to identify if your products are in scope

  • How to calculate the nutrient profiling model ‘HFSS’ score

Understanding the HFSS promotional location regulations: are you in scope? Part 1

Andrea Martinez-Inchausti, the British Retail Consortium's deputy director for food policy explains how to identify if your products are in scope and if your business will be liable.
