Food industry reacts to new National Obesity Policy

Food and Drink Industry Ireland (FDII) Director Paul Kelly, commenting on the launch of the National Obesity Policy and Action Plan said: “FDII supports evidence based policy making and a collaborative approach to diet and public health. There are elements of the new policy that the food and drink industry can support through our work on effective measures like product reformulation, nutrition labelling, product choice and workplace wellbeing. However, the food sector is adamantly opposed to the inclusion of policy measures, like food and beverage taxes, which are unfair, discriminatory and not evidence based.
