Hovis to adopt hybrid labelling scheme

first_imgHovis is to become an early adopter of the government’s new hybrid labelling scheme – meaning calories, fat, saturated fat, sugars and salt will be listed on the front of all of its branded packs.Premier Foods, the company behind the Hovis brand, as well as a host of other food brands, said the decision represented its “commitment” under the Public Health Responsibility Deal and is designed to give consumers more consistent information to help manage their diets.Gavin Darby, Premier Foods’ chief executive, said: “We’ve been voluntarily declaring GDA information on the front of pack for many years. However, the difference between manufacturer and retailer labelling schemes has been potentially confusing for consumers.“While no labelling scheme is perfect, I believe the government’s new hybrid scheme provides the best opportunity to move towards one consistent approach in the UK. We wanted to make a quick decision on this so that we can plan label changes in the most cost-effective way.”Over the next 18-24 months, the new labelling will be phased in across Premier Foods’ portfolio of brands including Ambrosia, Batchelors, Bisto, Hovis, Loyd Grossman, Mr Kipling, Oxo and Sharwood’s. Information on the calorie and key nutrient content per pack or portion will be provided according to a standardised format in relation to the Reference Intake for each nutrient (previously known as the Guideline Daily Amount or GDA).The new labelling commitment complements other pledges that Premier Foods has made under the Responsibility Deal. These have resulted in the removal of artificial trans fats from the company’s portfolio in 2011 whilst 540 tonnes of salt were removed from its products by the end of 2012, significantly exceeding its original target of 286 tonnes. It has also committed to reducing calories across one-third of its portfolio by 2014 and ensuring that at least 30% of its new products each year will provide consumers with lower calorie choices.last_img read more

North Carolina campground closures across state park system to continue through May 22

first_imgVirginia becomes first state in South to pledge goal of carbon-free energy Georgia denies the nation’s last new coal plant North Carolina campground closures across state park system to continue through May 22 “Please do not call the reservation line or the park about your reservation,” NC State Parks said on their Facebook page. “If your reservation falls within the campground closure dates, Aspira, our reservations management company, will contact you directly to cancel your reservation and issue a full refund.” In the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic, Virginia is moving ahead with the goal of becoming carbon-free by 2045, the Washington Post reports. Last weekend, Gov. Ralph Northam signed legislation which mandates Dominion Energy, the state’s largest utility, to switch to renewable energy by 2045. Appalachian Power, which provides energy to southwest Virginia, must be carbon-free by 2050. “I am thankful for the EPD’s decision so we can move on from this outdated and unnecessary project,” Katherine Cummings, a member of Georgia’s Fall-line Alliance for a Clean Environment (FACE) said in a statement. “Plant Washington posed a threat to family budgets, community health, and natural resources in and beyond Middle Georgia. It’s certainly a moment of closure and relief that this polluting giant will never be built.” The actions “Will create thousands of clean energy jobs, make major progress on fighting climate change, and break Virginia’s reliance on fossil fuels,” state Sen. Jennifer L. McClellan told the Washington Post in a statement.  On Friday, NC State Parks announced that state park campground closures will continue through May 22.  Last week, the Georgia Environmental Protection Division (EPD) denied a request for additional time to begin construction on Plant Washington, a new coal plant that has been in the works for 12 years and would have cost more than $2 billion. It was the last proposed new coal power plant project in the United States.last_img read more
