Schwan's cuts sodium level in school pizzas

Trevor Born from Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journals reports that  Schwan's Food Service Inc.'s Big Daddy's line of school pizzas will cut sodium levels this fall by 15 to 25 percent compared to the end of last school year.

Schwan's, which is the largest supplier of pizza to the National School Lunch Program and works with approximately three-quarters of the nation's schools, both public and private, announced plans in April for a 10 percent sodium reduction in all of its school pizzas by fall 2011. With Big Daddy's brand, a multiple-pizza line which makes up about one-third of the company's school pizza business, the goal was met a year early and with a higher sodium reduction.

"We know that pizza is a favorite choice [for school lunch], and we believe it's our responsibility to make these products as nutritious as we can," senior marketing director Michael Wiser said in a release.
The company said the rest of its school pizza brands are still on track for the fall 2011 goal.
