Aramark removes a tonne of saturated fat from its food

Aramark removes a tonne of saturated fat from its food

Aramark is taking a tonne of saturated fat out of its customers' diets each year, after a comprehensive product review.

The move comes as the foodservice operator aims to further boost the healthy eating credentials of its food.

Following the review by the company's food development team, Aramark delisted Phase cooking and baking spread, replacing it with Flora.

As Flora is 1g of saturated fat lower than Phase for every 10g used, the cumulative effect will be to reduce the saturated fat eaten by customers at Aramark-operated sites. The switch in products will also mean an increase in omega 3 oils and essential fatty acids in customers' diets.

Val Carter (pictured), corporate responsibility director, Aramark said: "Health and wellbeing are increasingly at the forefront of clients' minds and, of course, on the wider government and policy agenda.

"Sometimes, it's simple measures which can prove really effective and, through this product swap, we'll be making a tangible difference to people's diets without compromising on taste or product quality."

Both Flora and Phase are supplied by Unilever Food Solutions.
