Supermarkets join govt healthy food push
8 Nov 2015
Supermarket giants Coles and Woolworths have signed up to a new federal government push to curb obesity.
Rural Health Minister Fiona Nash has announced a new healthy food partnership involving supermarkets, health experts and food industry groups, which will come up with ways to get people eating healthy.
“Australians under-consume fresh fruit and vegetables and this presents a dual opportunity – increasing consumption of fresh produce would benefit both consumer health and Australian farmers,” Senator Nash said on Sunday.
