Date Set for Junk Food Promotion Ban

Supermarkets in England will be banned from displaying unhealthy food at checkouts and multibuy offers on junk food from April 2022, the Government has confirmed. The restrictions, first trialed last July in the Government’s new Obesity Plan, will be subject to an 8-week consultation to gather industry views on enforcement and sanctions. Checkout restrictions will also apply to other sales-boosting locations such as store entrances and end of aisles. Similar rules will also apply online (e.g suggesting items at checkout payment pages.)
