The context for working with the food and beverage industry has evolved with the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals to guide development over the next 15 years. With this firmly in mind, the World Heart Federation policy document outlines a two-pronged approach to World Heart Federation working with the industry:
• A hybrid business relationship/public health approach, involving certification and industry sponsorship.
• A public health approach (i.e. environmental), involving a working relationship with the food industry to drive food reformulation at a global/national level
The policy is currently going through a Board consultation process. In the meantime you can read the full document here.
