Submitted: 10 August, 2012
In 2009 Lidl UK carried out a review of the entire own brand product range offered to our UK consumers with the aim of establishing how many of our items contained artificial trans fats. This study revealed a total of 60 products.Since 2009 we have worked extensively with our suppliers in the UK and our Lidl colleagues in Europe to ensure the removal of artificial trans fats from these products.Following the work done on this removal Lidl were able to confirm the removal of artificial trans fats from the entire own brand range from early 2010.In order to ensure that all new own brand products are free from artificial trans fat we thoroughly check all ingredient declarations at the product development stage to ensure compliance with our criteria. The same applies when carrying out product reviews/changes.We actively promote this through our website so our customers are aware of our commitment to artificial trans fat removal.
