UK Government launch consultation on total ban of online advertising for unhealthy foods
The UK Government has launched a consultation on proposals to ban online adverts for foods high in fat, sugar and salt in the UK. The areas being consulted on include:
- types of advertising to be restricted
- liability for compliance
- enforcement of the restrictions
The consultation is open until 22 December 2020, and hopes to gather views from the public and industry stakeholders in order to understand the impact and challenges of introducing a total ban on the advertising of these products online.
