General Manager of Mars Food Australia, Hamish Thomson, said that as the makers of some of Australia’s most loved brands including MASTERFOODS®, DOLMIO®, KAN TONG® and UNCLE BEN’S®, the company has a responsibility to help Australians consume more balanced diets and to be transparent about our products to help customers make informed choices.
In Australia we have been working since 2007 to remove salt and sugar from our products and to increase the serves of vegetables in our recipes. This Ambition makes a number of additional commitments that will help us realise our Food Purpose of Better Food Today, Better World Tomorrow.
Mr. Thomson continued to say that the Health and Wellbeing Ambition will guide product development to continue to improve the nutritional content of our portfolio and provide consumers with more information to help make informed, balanced choices.
We are also committed to inspiring consumers to cook and share healthy meals.
