Pricecheck has launched a guide of HFSS compliant products in order to help its customer base navigate the upcoming legislation, which comes into force in October.
The guide equates to a wide range of SKUs including confectionery, snacks, and drinks. Pricecheck has also released a non-food version consisting of beauty, toiletries, and household products, which it claims will fill the gaps in impulse traditionally dominated by confectionery.
HFSS refers to food and drink products that are high in saturated fat, salt or sugar. In a bid to tackle the obesity crisis, the Government is introducing the legislation in order to restrict promotions on these type of products.
