The Committee on Reduction of Salt and Sugar in Food (CRSS) proposed to introduce a voluntary front-of-pack “low-salt-low-sugar” labelling scheme (the Scheme) for prepackaged food. The CRSS considers that the Scheme for pre-packaged food will help consumers identify low-salt-low-sugar products easily and make informed choices. It is also wished that the Scheme will serve as a catalyst for the trade to provide more varieties of low-salt-low-sugar products for consumers. The objective of the competition is to invite members of the public to design a set of "low-salt-low-sugar" labels for use in prepackaged food. The authorities may consider making use of the winning entries when introducing the aforementioned scheme.
Eligibility of Entry
The Competition is open to the public.
