A Colour Code System (CCS) indicating sugar and salt levels in packaged food would become mandatory on labels of all sweets including biscuits with effect from April 2, Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne said today.

Earlier, the Minister said the colour codes introduced for soft or fizzy drinks would be imposed on all solid foods to further control the fast-spreading Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDS).

He said that the Health Ministry would direct all solid, semi-solid and fruit drink producers to display the sugar and salt content on the lid or cover or wrapper by way of a colour code for easy identification.
