Simplot has been found to be Australia’s third healthiest food manufacturers by the latest George Institute for Global Health's annual snapshot of the nation’s packaged food supply.
The annual George Institute's Foodswitch: State of the Food Supply report uses the government-developed Health Star Rating criteria to rank just over 18,000 packaged food and beverage items being sold across the country.
In the latest report we maintained our position of third best from the previous report while also increasing the average Health Star Rating of our portfolio of products from 3.8 to 3.9 of a possible 5 stars. The report found that more than 85% of our products are considered “healthy” (with a Health Star Rating of more than 3.5).
“Simplot Australia recognises the vital link between healthy eating habits as part of a healthy lifestyle and we’re committed to providing healthy food options for Aussies, said Carena Gee, Nutrition Lead, Simplot Australia.
This recognition demonstrates that we’re firmly on our path to achieving the goal we’ve set ourselves to produce healthier foods by increasing our average Health Star Rating across our total portfolio of products.”
To do this, we’re focussed on three key areas where we know we can make a difference being Improve (working to make our portfolio healthier), Innovate (creating healthy new products) and Inform (inspiring and enabling healthy food choices).
