Upfield, manufacturer of vegetable spreads, which emerged from the sale of Unilever’s margarine business to the investor KKR, intend to equip products with a CO2 label by the end of 2021. To begin with, 100m product units are planned.

The aim is to inform consumers and help them to make informed choices about the environmental impact of the food they choose. A study commissioned by Upfield and carried out by the Swiss sustainability consultancy Quantis on the environmental impact of the entire life cycle of Upfield products shows that they have on average a 70 percent lower CO2 footprint than butter.
