Food and Beverage Companies Beat their Calorie-Cutting Goal


In 2010, 16 of the nation's leading food and beverage companies—acting together as part of the Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation—pledged to remove 1 trillion calories from the marketplace by 2012, and 1.5 trillion in 2015.                 The companies have so far exceeded their goal. An independent evaluation funded by RWJF found that they sold 6.4 trillion fewer calories in the United States in 2012 than they did in 2007, thus far exceeding their 2015 pledge by more than 400 percent.

Participating companies include some of the biggest food and beverage companies in the world: ConAgra Foods, General Mills, Kellogg Company, PepsiCo, The Coca-Cola Company, and more.
