12 Major Food And Beverage Companies Commit To Helping Eliminate Trans Fats In Food Supply

May 22, 2019

The International Food and Beverage Alliance - which includes 12 food and beverage companies - has decided to adjust its products to contribute to the World Health Organisation's goal of eliminating industrially produced trans-fat by 2023, according to a press release from the alliance.

The manufacturers in the alliance are The Coca-Cola Company, Danone, Ferrero, General Mills, Grupo Bimbo, The Kellogg Company, Mars, McDonald’s, Mondelez International, Nestlé, PepsiCo and Unilever.

They have committed to not exceed 2 grams of industrially produced trans fat per 100 g fat/oil in their products worldwide by 2023, in line with the WHO’s overall objective of phasing out iTFA from the global food supply by that date.
