Waitrose has confirmed that it is planning to adopt a traffic light labelling scheme for its products.

As revealed by The Grocer on Saturday (February 25), Waitrose said that it would initially adopt the scheme across its range of sandwiches before being rolled out to other types of products, including ready meals and pizzas.

Products will either be given a red, amber or green code on the front of each pack according to levels of fats, saturates, salts and sugar per 100g.
