UK: Mondelez pulls Bar and a Half in anti-obesity pledge
Mondelez is pulling its Cadbury Bar and a Half range in the UK in a bid to cut obesity levels
Mondelez International has pulled its Bar and a Half range in the UK in a move aimed to support the government's Responsibility Deal on Public Health.
As part of the commitment, the firm has pledged to ensure all its single serve confectionery brands are 250kcals or less by the end of 2015.
"We believe this will help UK consumers reduce their calorie intake through improved portion control," it said on its website.
Food manufacturers are increasingly coming under pressure to help tackle rising obesity levels across the nation.
