Health and Wellbeing
Industry continues to respond to society's concerns about the health of the
nation, particularly in relation to rising obesity levels, and we are
committed to playing a positive role in this debate.
The aim of our Health and Wellbeing Steering Group is to work constructively with Government, regulators and others to help find
solutions to the complex issues at the heart of the diet and health challenge
here in the UK.
The Group aims to drive forward the Food and Health Manifesto commitments
unveiled by the industry in 2004. Much progress has been made in delivering on
commitments, particularly in areas such as front-of-pack nutrition labelling,
workplace wellbeing and product reformulation, where the UK is widely
to be leading the world.
