AANA is conducting a formal review of the Food & Beverages Advertising Code (F&B Code) that governs food and non-alcoholic beverage advertising in Australia.
The review will also incorporate a review of the Australian Food and Grocery Council’s (AFGC) Responsible Children’s Marketing and Quick Service Restaurants Initiatives. The AANA will assume responsibility for the administration of the AFGC Initiatives from 1 July 2020.
The purpose of the review is to ensure that the content of food and beverage advertising in Australia continues to adhere to a high standard of social responsibility.
Interested stakeholders, members of the public and AANA members are invited to participate in the review of the F&B Code. The AANA has released a discussion paper to guide input into the review.
Submissions will be accepted until 5PM on Friday 12 June 2020.
It is expected that a new Code will be published in October 2020 and take effect from January 2021.
