Sugar Nutrition UK (SNU) is a sugar industry lobby group created on 9 January 2012.[1] It was formerly known as the Sugar Bureau, a UK industry-funded organisation set up in 1964. SNU states on its website that it is 'funded principally by UK sugar manufacturers'.[2]


SNU looks to improve knowledge and understanding about the contributions of sugar and other carbohydrates to a healthy balanced diet. In order to do this they fund scientific research around the UK, they communicate science-based information on all aspects of sugar and health and other nutritional topics, to the media, health professionals, consumers, academics, industry and the Government.
