Which? response to Government proposals on front of food pack labelling

Commenting on the Department of Health’s announcement to introduce a new consistent system for front of food pack labelling, Which? executive director, Richard Lloyd, said:

“With levels of obesity and diet-related disease on the increase it’s vitally important that people know what’s in their food so that they can make an informed choice. Which? has campaigned for years for traffic light labelling so we’re pleased the Government has now decided to support this and that every major supermarket, except Iceland, is committed to the scheme. The Government now needs to press food manufacturers to do the same and make sure that labels are consistent and based on strong, independent criteria, so that consumers can easily compare products.”
