Food and drink manufacturers across the UK aim to reduce the sugar content in their processed food by 20% between 2016 and 2020, this means the market is wide open for Scottish innovation.

The consumer is more aware of the impact that diet can have on health than ever before, and is increasingly looking at the sugar content in products before buying.
