Kawther Hashem, Nutritionist of CASH said: "It's great to see such a large and influential company as Charlton House continuing to look at ways to reduce salt in people’s diets. It shows that both chefs and consumers alike can easily eat less salt, and although they won't notice a difference to the taste, they will notice a difference to their health. For every 1 gram reduction in the nation’s salt intake we can prevent 6,000 people dying prematurely from strokes, heart attacks and heart failure.”

Caroline Fry, CH&Co Chief Executive (B&I) of says “As 1 in 6 meals is now eaten out of the home, Caterers play an important role in the health We are constantly striving for innovative ways to reduce salt in traditionally high sodium foods such as bacon, sausages, soft cheeses, sauces and gravies, but our engagement programmes are a vital addition to contributing to a healthier diet for individuals and for the overall workforce.”

Independent nutritionist Amanda Ursell, who co-hosts the Charlton House Wellbeing Awareness day events says: “One of the quickest and easiest ways to lower your blood pressure is to reduce your salt intake and Charlton House is committed to doing just that in its healthy eating concepts and menus. By educating consumers to reduce salt used at the table, and by providing lower salt alternatives, Charlton House is empowering individuals to make informed, healthy choices. The evidence of decreased salt usage is clearly an indicator that this approach is working.”
