Junk Food Ad Ban

24th April 2019, 2-3pm

We will have members of the Mayor of London’s team to talk through how they brought the junk food ad ban across the TFL network. We will also be hearing from Food Active and Sustain on their joint report on local action on junk food advertising across the UK (soon to be launched). Register to hear more about how your local area can introduce its own healthier food and drink advertising policies.

Good Policy for Good Food

Scaling up local food policy-making in England

We have published the first guide to present the range of available local food policy levers in England as well as guidance on 'Engaging with Local Authorities' around the SFC agenda. 28 policy levers and their case studies to guide those who want to engage more effectively with local policy-making and reap the full benefits that doing so can bring.
