HEALA would like to invite you to participate in our social media efforts to raise public awareness on the publication of the draft regulations on Front-of-Pack Warning labels. We would like you to assist us in amplifying our message on your various digital platforms.
As we all know, South African shops are inundated with pre-packaged foods that are processed with high levels of added sugars, salt, and saturated fats. Research has found these nutrients are connected to increased obesity and chronic nutrition-related diseases. “High in” front-of-pack warning labels, which clearly identify products that are high in things like sugar, salt, saturated fat or trans-fats will help consumers spot unhealthy foods and make better food choices.
We would like to get as many submissions as possible in support for the regulations. Please have a look at the social media toolkit we have put together. It would be great if you could use the text and images provided on your various social media platforms.
Please let me know if there is anything I can do to assist you.
Thanks again for your ongoing support.
