When asked if a 20% reduction in sugar was possible for manufacturers to fulfill, Anglia Crown’s Paul Howell commented:
“Yes it is achievable and we are always delighted to support healthy food initiatives, but it comes down to palate too. We have to provide appetising food for our customers. Look at what happened when we were asked to produce wholemeal pastry. Yes we were able to achieve it but it takes time for people to adapt their sense of enjoyment and taste”
