At the initiative of the MVO Product Board, the Taskforce between 2003 and 2010 actively devoted its efforts to improving the fatty acid composition of products prepared with vegetable fats and oils. The trans fatty acids content in all products of the sectors affiliated with the Taskforce declined to extremely low levels. This has resulted in an average trans fatty acid intake lower than the maximum recommended intake of 1 energy percent. In addition, activities relating to the reducing of the saturated fat content of products and/or the increasing of the share of products with a lower saturated fat content were carried out in the context of the Responsible Fatty Acid Composition Taskforce (also see Article in Voeding Nu [Nutrition Now], November 2013, page 25 - in Dutch).  The Taskforce successfully completed its task and was disbanded in 2010.
