New Zealand Food Industry Taskforce on addressing factors contributing to obesity.
Since it was established in 2018, Fonterra has been part of the New Zealand Food Industry Taskforce on Addressing Factors Contributing to Obesity (FIT) which was set up to identify what more industry could do to assist in taking action to reduce obesity rates in New Zealand.
FIT submitted a report to Minister’s for Health and Food Safety, making 51 recommendations in 5 focus areas:
- Reformulation and Innovation
- Community Education and Initiatives
- Employee Health and Wellness
- Labelling and Health Star Rating
Fonterra representatives in the Taskforce advise on actions we are taking as a business and ensure recommendations are implemented as proposed with industry alignment.
