Food industry to ditch grab bags

12th July 2010

Health secretary, Andrew Lansley, has requested that food companies play a greater part in the promotion of healthy living in order to prevent obesity.

According to a small Daily Telegraph survey, 65% of crisps packets sold in outlets less than five minutes from schools weighed 40g or more and 43% weighed 50g or more (a standard bag weighed 34.5g). PepsiCo, who manufacture Walkers and Doritos crisps, said in March that they planned to get rid of the supersized 40g and 50g bags by 2015.
