Our members have committed to industry-wide implementation of consistent product labelling and consumer information by 2018.
We want to provide consumers with the choice and information that empowers them to make decisions for a healthy life. Public health challenges including obesity and NCDs and consumers’ desire to live healthier and be more active are significant elements of today’s landscape for consumer packaged goods. Our members accept the importance of clarity and transparency, fact-based information and harmonisation, and the CGF will continue to support members of all sizes and locations in reaching this commitment.
We have also established a dedicated Product Labelling and Consumer Information Working Group, who are looking into ways to help drive the industry forward as we aim to help the wider membership meet this public commitment. The Working Group meets regularly and helped in the creation of the Product Labelling and Consumer Information chapter in our Health & Wellness Toolkit. Those member companies interested in joining should contact us to learn more.
