Consistent food label 'will help fight obesity'

We all have a responsibility to tackle the challenge of obesity, including the food industry.

By having all major retailers and manufacturers signed up to the consistent label, we will all be able to see at a glance what is in our food.

This is why I want to see more manufacturers signing up and using the label.

– Public Health Minister Anna Soubry
