Collaborative platforms

As part of recent research conducted by Incite on behalf of the Southern Africa Food Lab and WWF South Africa, a comprehensive global review of health-related collaborative platforms and types of action involving industry participation was undertaken.

The review found that industry players across the food, beverage and retail sector are increasingly involved in food-related health initiatives on an individual and collaborative basis, often in response to growing regulation by governments in the interests of public health. Despite the increased engagement by industry and a more health-positive rhetoric generally, many of the health-related actions lack strategic intent, implementation is often patchy, and outcomes typically weak with very insufficient accountability.
