Following the succes of Action on Salt in the UK, WASH was set up in 2005 to help other countries develop and implement salt reduction strategies. WASH work with our members around the world to help them develop an appropriate strategy relevant to the needs of their country, and to stimulate action from governments, the public, the food industry and the media. Use the links on the left to view our projects in China and Malaysia. Further updates are coming soon!
WASH have also carried out surveys of the salt content of different product categories sold worldwide. Our members provide data from food products in their country, allowing us to assess the variation in salt content of a product depeneding on the country in which it is sold.
