Watch a recording of this session:

The AANA completed a public consultation of the Food & Beverage Advertising Code, the Responsible Children’s Marketing Initiative (RCMI) and the Quick Service Restaurant Initiative (QSRI) leading to a strengthening of the Code by ensuring that children are not targeted with advertising for occasional foods. The new Code takes effect on 1 November 2021.
