The Roadmap for Food Product Reformulation in Ireland sets out requirements for identifyingpriority food categories for food reformulation in Ireland. These include the identification of foods which contribute most to energy (calories), saturated fat, sugar and salt intakes in the Irish diet. The roadmap also requires alignment with PHE Salt and Sugar reformulation programme food categories as well as top shelf foods.
Food categories considered by the EU Joint Action (JA) on Nutrition – Best-ReMaP will also be included. Finally, product rages aimed towards babies and young children are included in the reformulation programme.
In order to identify and select a list of priority food categories for reformulation in Ireland a review was undertaken, see more in the report.
