We are Total Diet & Meal Replacements Europe (TDMR Europe)

The European trade body for manufacturers and distributors of formula diet products, including total diet replacement products (TDRs) and meal replacement products (MRPs) which provide weight loss and weight management programmes for the overweight and obese. Our members currently operate predominantly in the Netherlands, Sweden, Finland, the Czech Republic, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Ireland, Cyprus, Greece and Poland.

 

TDMR Europe was previously known as the European Very Low Calorie Diet (VLCD) Industry Group.

Representing the Total Diet and Meal Replacement Sector in Europe

We work to secure appropriate and proportionate European legislation for slimming foods and are in close continuous dialogue with a wide variety of stakeholders such as policymakers and senior officials in the relevant bodies to do this. We also aim to increase awareness and understanding of specialist weight management foods such as TDRs and MRPs and coordinate detailed technical and regulatory expertise of members to develop common industry positions that help to support European public policy and regulatory decisions.

We also take the argument for TDRs and MRPs in the industry to the TV and Radio

Also to the mainstream press and the specialist media, highlighting the increasing evidence base within the scientific literature regarding their efficacy and potential to change the face of obesity and related diseases in Europe.

All TDMR Europe members abide by our strict Code of Conduct, which can be accessed here.
