NOTE: Mars has implemented GDA nutritional labeling on most of the chocolate and confectionery portfolio globally in 2013, and continued to roll out GDA labeling across the entire food portfolio in 2014. Please note the following exceptions:

*Some confectionery are exempt from GDA labeling because they contribute a negligible amount of nutrients (per serving) to the diet. This target also excludes gift/promotional items.

** This target excludes herbs, spices and condiment packs that are too small to label with GDA information, as well as Mars Foodservice products.

*** Where possible given regulatory and food safety requirements.
