Where fresh fruit and vegetables stand with the Health Star Rating System

Following our engagement with the Health Star Rating (HSR) development team when the system launched, we have had further communications regarding where fresh fruit and vegetables are positioned relative to the 5-star system.

The current HSR was developed for processed food therefore it was not deemed appropriate to use the online calculator for fresh fruit and vegetables. United Fresh has raised the issue of messaging around this fact leading to it being identified as an area for consideration when the HSR is reviewed at two years (June 2016) and five years (June 2019).

We have been advised that the system would not be modified to include fresh fruit and vegetables prior to the reviews.  We will keep you updated as we obtain more information.
