Make your food business Sugar Smart

Sugar Smart food business

We’re asking caterers, cafes, restaurants and takeaways to work with us and make your food business Sugar Smart.

Every little helps… making small changes or setting Sugar Smart challenges. For example by reducing sugar in recipes by 10%, can help.

Free resources available on the sugar smart website

A quick and easy commitment is to display information on your drinks fridges, vending machines or on your counter to show the sugar content of a range of drinks.


Keeping water at eye level: Small changes such as keeping water at eye level in vending machines or on shelves can make a difference.

Sell healthier options: Serve a selection of low/sugar-free food options or have a fruit bowl on the check-out instead of chocolate bars.

Images: Free Sugar Smart Images to assist with labelling produce. Suggested usages include menus, on boards, on product labels, to name a few!
