OECD Paris, 25-26/10/2012

OECD Paris, 25-26/10/2012

5 Global Strategy on Diet, Physical Activity and Health (2004)
Reducing trans fatty acids and salt Restricting availability of energy dense foods and high calorie non-alcoholic beverages Increasing availability of healthier foods including fruits and vegetables Practice of responsible marketing to reduce impact of unhealthy foods to children Making healthy options available and affordable Providing simple, clear and consistent food labels that are consumer friendly Reshaping industry to introduce new products with better nutritional value Making physical activity accessible in all settings OECD Paris, 25-26/10/2012

13/04/2017 "Best buys" interventions to address NCDs Population-based interventions addressing NCD risk factors Tobacco use Excise tax increases Smoke-free indoor workplaces and public places Health information and warnings about tobacco Bans on advertising and promotion Harmful use of alcohol Excise tax increases on alcoholic beverages Comprehensive restrictions and bans on alcohol marketing Restrictions on the availability of retailed alcohol Unhealthy diet and physical inactivity Salt reduction through mass media campaigns and reduced salt content in processed foods Replacement of trans-fats with polyunsaturated fats Public awareness programme about diet and physical activity Individual-based interventions addressing NCDs in primary care Cancer Prevention of liver cancer through hepatitis B immunization Prevention of cervical cancer through screening (visual inspection with acetic acid [VIA]) and treatment of pre-cancerous lesions Cardiovascular disease and diabetes Multi-drug therapy (including glycaemic control for diabetes mellitus) for individuals who have had a heart attack or stroke, and to persons at high risk (> 30%) of a cardiovascular event within 10 years Providing aspirin to people having an acute heart attack OECD Paris, 25-26/10/2012 6

9 Salt reduction in the UK
2003 : 3 pronged strategy campaign to raise awareness targets for food industry to reduce salt levels in 80 food categories front of pack labelling 2008 : 26,000 t/y salt removed 24h urinary sodium in a random sample of adults has decreased 10% (from 9.5 to 8.6 g/d salt) ≈ 6000 deaths/yr - strokes, heart attacks saved 2010: ↓20-40% in processed food products OECD Paris, 25-26/10/2012

10 Setting Guiding Benchmark Sodium Reduction Levels for Processed Foods (Canada)
OECD Paris, 25-26/10/2012

11 Salt reduction in catering (USA)
Targets to guide company reductions in the salt levels in 25 categories of restaurant food. The initiative includes voluntary 2012 and 2014 targets for average salt levels in each food category as well as a maximum salt level for all items served in restaurants.  When a restaurant signs on to the initiative, it pledges that its overall sales in a given category – cheeseburgers, for example – will meet the relevant target for salt content, even if some individual products don't. OECD Paris, 25-26/10/2012

12 TFA reduction in New York City
2007 regulation : restricts from using, serving, storing, serving foods that contains PHVO and has a total 0.5 g or more TFA per serving Angell et al. Ann Intern Med 2012;157:81-86 OECD Paris, 25-26/10/2012

13 Australia – food category action plan
To achieve the overall objective of reducing sodium and saturated fat in processed meats, participants have agreed to: reduce the sodium content of nominated bacon2 and ham/cured meat products to 1090mg per 100g. reduce the sodium content of nominated emulsified luncheon meats3 to 830mg per 100g. reduce by 10 per cent the saturated fat content of nominated cooked/smoked sausages4 and emulsified luncheon meats that have in excess of 6.5g of saturated fat per 100g. The timeframe for action will be 1 January 2010 to 31 December The products targeted and the amount of sodium and saturated fat to be removed from products each year will be determined by the individual companies involved. OECD Paris, 25-26/10/2012
