It is, says the company, accepted that there is no single solution to lowering obesity rates; however, the food industry has a part to play in providing food choices that assist in weight management. It points out that this is reflected in the ‘Calorie Reduction’ pledge as part of the UK Department of Health Public Health Responsibility Deal which currently has 37 industry signatories who have committed to take action.

A Campden BRI conference – NPD challenges for weight management – to be held on 15 October, will focus on the production of products that assist with weight management, and will cover:

 The Public Health Responsibility Deal and the calorie reduction pledge

 Legislation aspects

 Challenges faced in product development for weight management

 Specific ingredients (protein, fibre) and the manipulation of food structure in improving satiety

 Creating reduced calorie products

 Low calorie diets and diet replacers
