Europe’s soft drinks companies have made significant investments in reformulation and new product development to reduce sugar and calories. No- and low-calorie versions now represent some 24 % of sales across Europe.
The European soft drinks industry has committed to stop offering sugar-sweetened drinks for sale in secondary schools across Europe and to provide only no-calorie and low-calorie options by the end of 2018.
The need for fast, accurate and balanced information is always important. We value EURACTIV's good, independent journalism and support this initiative
Mella Frewen, Director General of FoodDrinkEurope
EURACTIV plays a vital role in bringing Europe closer to its citizens. EURACTIV has long recognised that the story of Europe has to be told across the continent, and not just in Brussels. We need to support a truly European and informed debate.
