From October 2022, HFSS legislation means new restrictions on product placement for some high fat, salt or sugar products.
Researchers at the Consumer Data Research Centre at the University of Leeds have developed the Nutrient Profile Model (NPM) calculator which makes assessing products easy.
Our free tool calculates the NPM score and helps you identify whether a product is in scope for restrictions, supporting compliance and enforcement.
Victoria Jenneson, lead researcher on the project, explained: “It’s great to see Government taking action to restrict promotions of HFSS products, but the legislation is quite tricky to interpret. Stakeholder consultations revealed a need for support to implement the new rules, particularly for SMEs, convenience stores and enforcement officers. The NPM calculator offers a free to use mobile-friendly tool which makes HFSS assessment simple and transparent.”
