About us…

gulp is a new campaign from Food Active which aims to raise awareness of the health harms associated with over consumption of sugary drinks.

While many people are aware of the negative impact that sugary drinks have on teeth, fewer are aware of the link between the over consumption of sugary drinks and weight gain.

Gulp seeks to change this.

Over the coming months we’ll be encouraging people to give up loving pop and to think of drinking healthier alternatives instead.

If you want to join us in our campaign to give up loving pop then please explore our website and join in on social media!
