This is the second report in our Building Momentum series
The second report in this series provides advice to policymakers about designing and implementing a front-of-pack food label in the face of various challenges caused by lack of political will and industry interference.
It seeks to equip policymakers with overarching guidance on how to design a robust front-of-pack food label that will help overcome issues of lack of political as well as defend their label against legal and non-legal challenges, including common tactics used by industry.
Case studies are included throughout the report from countries who are in the process of, or who have already implemented a front-of-pack label.
“It’s important to draw on experiences of policymakers from around the world to design robust policy actions which can help reduce the burden of diet-related NCDs. This report will help governments overcome the challenges faced when implementing front-of-pack food labelling.” – Prof Mike Rayner, University of Oxford and Centre on Population Approaches for Non-Communicable Disease Prevention, UK
