Our consultant can provide healthier choice symbol services by guiding food manufacturers and processors through the process of obtaining and using the symbol on their food products.
What is Healthier Choice Symbol?
The Healthier Choice Symbol (HCS) is a voluntary symbol introduced by the Health Promotion Board (HPB) in Singapore, which is intended to help consumers make healthier food choices. The HCS is awarded to food and beverage products that meet certain nutritional criteria set by the HPB. The HCS criteria aims to encourage consumers to choose products that are lower in saturated fat, trans fat, sodium, sugar and Glycemic Index as well as higher in whole grains or Calcium.
The HCS is an important initiative that supports public health, promotes healthier food choices, enhances consumer confidence, and supports the food industry. By providing a clear and recognizable symbol for healthier food and beverage products, the HCS can help to improve the nutritional quality of the food supply and reduce the incidence of chronic diseases in Singapore.
