Our aim is to provide a wide variety of great-tasting snacks to suit all sorts of tastes and occasions, along with clear information so that people can make informed decisions about which snacks they choose.
We know health is a key priority for many consumers in the UK. KP is passionate about doing the right thing and so we are committed to encouraging healthier lifestyles and providing healthier options to enjoy as part of a balanced diet.

Progress as of March 2022: 79% of our product portfolio contains 4g or less of saturated fat per 100g
