The Public Health Responsibility Deal
The UK Department of Health works with the food manufacturing and retail industry to improve the nation's health and wellbeing, and as a high-profile food company we have a role to play in this. In 2011, we became a partner of the Public Health Responsibility Deal, and pledged to roll out calorie information on all our menu boards.
Our commitment continues, and in September 2012 we signed up to the Salt Catering Pledges on training and kitchen practice and reformulation. We committed to continue removing salt across our menu, and to training each employee about healthier lifestyle choices, including salt.
KFC UK and Ireland has signed four pledges so far:
- Out of Home Calorie Labelling
- Non use of Artificial Trans Fats
- Salt Catering: Training and Kitchen Practice
- Salt Catering: Reformulation as Purchased by the Customer
We are also discussing the possibility of a Calorie Pledge with the Department of Health.
