Big Beverage Companies In Singapore Commit To Sugar Reduction

August 23, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
Seven companies that account for 70 percent of the sugar-sweetened soft drinks and other beverages sold in Singapore have agreed to limit their products’ sugar content to 12 percent at most by 2020 help achieve the government’s goal of reducing diabetes. The commitment by Coca-Cola, F&N Foods, Malaysia Dairy Industries, Nestlé, PepsiCo, Pokka, and Yeo Hiap Seng, is expected to reduce sugar consumption from soft drinks by as much as 300,000 kg a year. About 400,000 people live with diabetes in the country. The agency says 60 percent of total sugar intake comes from sugary soft drinks, juices, coffees, and teas.
