F3(a). Non use of Artificial Trans Fat
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 22 December, 2011
Marston's Inns Taverns have been liaising for over 5 years with our supplier base to review and subsequently reformulate any products which contain hydrogenated and artificial trans fats.As a result we do not have any products within our portfolio which contain these ingredients. The presence of these ingredients is raised from the out set of any new product development brief as our suppliers are informed in writing that neither hydrogenated or artificial trans fats will be accepted in our products.Once a new product is approved a detailed product specification is completed and signed by each of our suppliers and obtains information on the composition of all ingredients and sub ingredients as well as asking the specific question of the supplier on whether hydrogenated or artificial trans fats are in the product.No products have been launched containing, or reformulated to remove, artificial trans and hydrogenated fats since the commitment launch.
