PARIS, 25th February 2021 — The Consumer Goods Forum is delighted to announce the following new companies have joined our global membership community and, in doing so, have confirmed their commitment to our vision of better lives through better business.
A world leading producer of specialist potassium chloride supplying globally from their base in Scotland, UK, Klinge Chemicals Ltd. is a company on a mission. Improving consumer health via sodium reduction has been fundamental to the small family business since the launch of their iconic brand LoSalt® onto the UK market in 1984. Now a global brand, LoSalt’s message has always been clear: empower the consumer to “Season with Sense”
“Never has it been so imperative to strive towards a culture of healthier lifestyle adoption. Consumer health is clearly an area where we, as an industry, can have a particularly positive impact. For over four decades our iconic brand LoSalt® has been at the forefront of reducing consumer sodium intake, giving us a unique insight to the job in hand…and there is still significant work to do! Working as a collaborative is the only way to drive the required change. We are proud to join the aspirational CGF community striving towards the urgent need for improvement in global nutrition.” – Michael Klinge, CEO, Klinge Chemicals Ltd.
