The Grocer is launching a campaign tomorrow that calls for the government to Junk the Spin, and to work with the industry to find new ways of improving the nation’s health.

The Grocer wants your response on this issue and it welcomes your feedback, as well as signatures on its petition.

Its campaign criticises the government for implementing short-term fixes to complicated and long-established problems such as obesity and excess salt intake.

It also dismisses the government’s proposed plans for a labelling system for food. “It seems our campaign has not come soon enough,” says The Grocer’s editor Julian Hunt. “This is a daft idea and should be killed at birth.”

Instead, The Grocer wants to encourage the government to look at this issue in more detail and initiate a sensible debate about the role this industry can play in improving the health of our nation.

Full details will be in The Grocer, September 25. What do you think about this issue? Feedback is encouraged, so please send in your thoughts either here via the web site or via grocer.letters@william-reed.co.uk.
