ConAgra Says Cutting Salt Content Of Its Foods Is A “Serious” Goal

October 15, 2009: 11:03 PM EST
Responding to consumer demands for healthier foods, ConAgra Foods said it plans to eliminate eight million pounds of salt from its foods, which include the Healthy Choice frozen dinners, by 2015 – a total of 20 percent of the salt content. It has already cut salt by two million pounds since 2006, including 27 percent of the salt content of Kid Cuisine frozen meals. A 2008 market research survey found that 41 percent of shoppers said they are using low sodium products once a week or more. “We’re taking this very seriously and we’re acting upon it,” a ConAgra exec said.
