Leading food and beverage industry members have recommended a package of practical measures that could contribute to the broader range of Government initiatives addressing obesity.
The Government considers working with the food and beverage industry to create healthier food environments is an important component of supporting healthy eating and reducing obesity.
In June 2018 leading food and beverage industry members formed the Food Industry Taskforce on Addressing Factors Contributing to Obesity, at the request of the Ministers of Health and Food Safety. On 20 December 2018 the Taskforce provided the ‘Final Report to Ministers of Health and Food Safety’ identifying actions that industry members could take to further address obesity.
The full Report and joint letter of response to the Taskforce from the Ministers of Health and Food Safety is available below.
