Webinar: Understand the impact of
HFSS restrictions on our industry and your shoppers

This webinar has now ended


Food retail is changing, and businesses need to prepare now.

Restrictions on promoting foods high in fat, salt and sugar will come into force in October 2022, and are estimated to negatively impact sales by £1.1 Billion1. The restrictions will prevent many products being located in premium store space. Additionally, they restrict the use of volume price promotions, which currently cause shoppers to buy around 20% more food than they otherwise would2.

We want to help industry plan for October 2022 and beyond, so we’ve undertaken extensive shopper research, using in-store eye tracking alongside other methodologies, to understand the potential impact of new regulations on shoppers.

In this free webinar, Insight and Nutrition experts will summarise the regulations, their impact on your business and your shoppers, as well as highlighting business opportunities.

We’ll finish by facilitating a live Q&A – so please get involved.


Why join this webinar?

Aimed at food retailers and manufacturers, this webinar will help you understand the restrictions and plan for the future of food retail.

The webinar will be particularly relevant for those working in category management, store planning and corporate affairs functions, as well as marketing, nutrition and innovation teams.
