600 tonnes of sugar removed from the breakfast menu

As part of our campaign targeting the reduction of sugar in the original UP&GO blue box, we have removed a further 600 tonnes of sugar from the Trans-Tasman Liquid Breakfast market*. 

UP&GO No Added Sugar was launched in Australia in January 2020 in Chocolate and Vanilla, offering a solution to consumers who had not previously purchased within the liquid breakfast category.

* Calculated on scan sales for the period of July-December 2019
