UK Food Policy & Nutrition: Tracking Progress

This event will review the policy and practice of Government and business on nutrition by looking at 3 new bodies of evidence:

  • The Global Nutrition Report’s data on UK progress on global nutrition targets;
  • The Access to Nutrition Index which ranks food manufacturers on the extent to which they are supporting good nutrition outcomes; and
  • The Food Foundation’s research applying the Food Environment Policy Index to the UK.

The panel will be chaired by Corinna Hawkes Honorary Research Fellow at the Centre for Food Policy at City University.  We will be hearing from guest speakers:

Prof Boyd Swinburn, Professor of Population Nutrition and Global Health at the University of Auckland and coauthor of the Lancet’s obesity series.
Inge Kauer, Executive Director of the Access to Nutrition Index, and
Lawrence Haddad, Senior Research Fellow at the International Food Policy Research Institute and Co-Chair of the Global Nutrition Report’s Independent Expert Group.
