The Sustainable Food Policy Alliance advocates for policies and practices that improve the quality and accessibility of information available to consumers about the food they purchase for themselves and their families.
As consumers ourselves, we know that food choices are highly personal. Each of us is looking for different information to guide our individual choices about food. Whether you value affordability, macronutrient content, certain ingredients, or specific production practices, we believe that people are entitled to clear and consistent information that accurately reflects the latest science and reliably informs their preferences. Within our own companies, the members of the Sustainable Food Policy Alliance have made broad changes to improve transparency – but we also recognize there is more work to be done, which is why we are committed to:
- Fully supporting the timely implementation of the new Nutrition Facts panel, which makes practical changes so that information is easier for consumers to read and understand.
- Exploring further labeling transparency and education as tools to help people take control of their health, including continuing to seek ways to improve and simplify food labels, and other mechanisms to convey information.
- Continuing to strengthen voluntary, industry-wide standards governing responsible marketing of foods and beverages to families and children.
- We are confident that currently approved gene-based technologies for food production are safe. We also believe that as food companies, we play a critical role in improving the quality and accessibility of information available to consumers about how their food is made so that they can make the most informed decisions for themselves and their families.
