Coca-Cola and Cadbury 'not using' new food labels

All the major supermarkets - Sainsbury's, Asda, Morrisons, the Co-operative, Waitrose and Tesco - have announced that they will use the label on their products, alongside Mars UK, Nestle UK, PepsiCo UK, Premier Foods and McCain Foods.

However, Coca-Cola and Cadbury have not signed up because they feel the use of guideline daily amounts is a better system, according to the BBC.

A new front-of-pack food labelling scheme is to be introduced. The voluntary system,, which will cover just over 60% of foods, will involve traffic light colour coding and nutritional information on each product.
