The Sustainable Food Policy Alliance is committed to developing and advocating for policies that increase access to healthy foods for all communities and help people make better-informed food choices while supporting a sustainable environment.

We make foods to support healthy, balanced lives, and we believe policies that affect the business of food should support people’s health, too. We are concerned about the continued rise in obesity rates and other chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, as well as food insecurity and access to healthy food, in the United States and globally. Collectively, our members  strive to improve the nutritional profile of our products, reducing the amount of saturated fat, sodium, and sugar in our products, as well as increasing micronutrients, including essential vitamins and minerals. Each of us has set goals to do more. We have begun increasing nutrient density, lowering calorie counts per serving size across the diverse range of our products, and updating our packaging to contain smaller portions that encourage saving some for later.

That is why we supported the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) release of short-term voluntary sodium reduction targets.
