A Pledge on Front-of-Pack Nutrition Labels

In 2018, WFPHA held a webinar on International Front-of-Pack Nutrition Labels. The webinar was a huge success and expert speakers provided valuable lessons and further reflections in bringing awareness and understanding to the consumer. At the conclusion of this webianr, a Call to Action was proposed on behalf of the WFPHA members. Food labelling systems can aid people adopt healthier diets by making easy and informed food choices. It can also have an impact on companies and lead to product reformulations to healthier versions. WFPHA encouraged government officials, health experts, food businesses, international organizations and consumers to adopt this call to action. 

Based on the results of the webinar and the Call to Action, the Public Health Association of Australia and the French Society of Public Health have created a pledge on Front-of-Pack Nutrition Labels to continue these efforts. This pledge includes a background on unhealthy diets, NCDs, and nutrition labels, as well as the main purpose, application methods, and a call to action on how to implement this pledge.
