IGD Healthy Eating Programme

IGD is a research and training charity that sits at the heart of the food and grocery industry.  We collaborate with organisations throughout the industry on education and research initiatives that encourage healthier eating across the UK. 

As part of the IGD Healthy Eating Programme, we conducted extensive research to find out what gets in the way of people using nutrition on pack. From that research, a series of guides and toolkits were created to help businesses effectively use and understand nutrition labels.
