SRC offering discount to manufacturers in beverage industry to meet MOHW guidlines

The Scientific Research Council (SRC) is offering a 20 per cent discount to manufacturers and entrepreneurs to reformulate their beverages to meet Ministry of Health and Wellness guidelines.

Executive Director, Dr. Charah Watson, told JIS News that the reduced cost will be for the rest of the financial year.

As a member of the Task Force that guides the health ministry in implementing strategies to raise the profile of foods in Jamaica, Dr Watson hopes that this will result in more healthy beverages being available to students and families.

Reformulation can be done to reduce the quantity of salt, sugar, and saturated and trans-fat in processed foods.
