About us

The Food and Drink Federation (FDF) is the voice of the UK food and drink industry, the largest manufacturing sector in the country.

FDF’s members, which are food companies of all sizes from across the UK, are
proud to make great tasting, affordable food and drink which is high quality,
safe
and nutritious. We want our customers to enjoy a balanced diet and have a
healthy lifestyle and are committed to working alongside others to help make it
easier
for people to achieve this.

Our commitment is long-standing: we published our first health and wellbeing
action plan in 2004 and in 2007 we established a Health and Wellbeing Steering
Group to work constructively with Government, regulators and others to help
find
solutions to the complex issues at the heart of the diet and health challenges
here
in the UK. Our work is varied, from reformulating old favourites so they
contain
less salt and saturated fat to funding community projects to help people
exercise more.

Providing clear on-pack labelling has always been a key part of this work, as it
allows people to make informed choices about the food they and their families
eat. Food and drink manufacturers have been providing nutrition labelling
voluntarily in the UK for more than twenty years. To make it even easier, we
developed
simplified nutrition labels to appear on the front of pack and these have been
widely used for about a decade. This information has now been adopted into
European legislation, ensuring clear, consistent nutrition information will be
available even more widely.
