We’re committed to ensuring that everyone has access to food that is healthy, nutritious and safe to eat. With obesity and diet-related disease a major problem around the world, food is a critical public health issue which affects everyone. We’re determined to ensure consumers are protected against foods and food production processes which are hazardous to health or life.

We have been campaigning to help consumers choose healthier diets for over 20 years.  Measures that can help them to do this include placing restrictions on the marketing of unhealthy food to children, better nutrition information and reductions in the levels of fat, sugar and salt in food. As an NGO in official relations with the World Health Organization (WHO), we are working to make sure that consumers are represented in global health governance.

We are also calling for reductions in the use of antibiotics in farming through our #antibioticsoffthemenu campaign, and providing a consumer voice in the development of international food standards through our work with Codex Alimentarius (the international food standards body).
