Members of the International Food & Beverage Alliance (IFBA) have committed to reduce sodium in their global product portfolios by 2025 and 2030 “in key categories of products that are frequently consumed and are important contributors to sodium intakes within their respective categories."
The 12-member alliance composed of The Coca-Cola Company, Danone, Ferrero, General Mills, Grupo Bimbo, Kellogg's, Mars, McDonald's, Mondelēz International, Nestlé, PepsiCo and Unilever, have pledged this in a letter to the World Health Organisation's Director-General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.
IFBA supports the WHO’s Global Action Plan for the Prevention and Control of Noncommunicable Diseases 2013-2020 designed to achieve a global target for a 30% relative reduction in mean population intake of salt, with the aim of achieving a target of less than 5 g of salt per day by 2025.
The IFBA Global Sodium Reduction Commitment was launched at the Tokyo Nutrition for Growth Summit on 8 December 2021. Read the full commitment here.
