New York City sets salt reduction goal

30 November 2011

(USA) New York has set a goal of gradually reducing the amount of salt in packaged and restaurant food by 25 percent over the next five years. The plan is voluntary for food companies and involves no legislation, however it does require cooperation on a national scale. The supermarket chain A.& P. and Subway are on board.
