Big Food Companies In U.K. Benefit From British Government R&D Funding

August 26, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
British government research councils have awarded nearly £3 million of public money to large food manufacturers to help them find ways to make their products more nutritious, the Telegraph newspaper reports. Companies who have received the money – including PepsiCo, Unilever, Wrigley’s, and several British firms – are working with university scientists to develop new food production technologies and ingredients. The companies already benefit from considerable tax relief, and critics wonder whether taxpayer funds should be awarded to companies to boost the nutritional value of their foods. That, they say, should be the companies’ job.
