Are you a senior consultant from the Philippines, experienced in (food) policies, who wants to engage in the national debate on front-of-pack labelling in collaboration with Choices?
The Choices International Foundation is a global organization that supports national initiatives to shaping national food system(s) to make the healthy choice the easy choice for consumers. An essential step is to be clear about what healthy is. The International Choices criteria, which are independent and science based, differentiate between more and less healthy products and take into account the local context. Based on these criteria, we support partnerships at national level between government, private sector, NGOs and science to agree on actions to drive availability, affordability and desirability of healthier products. These can include private and public policies such as positive FOP labelling, education, social marketing, responsible marketing, food reformulation, innovation, food procurement standards and financial (dis-)incentives.
The Choices International Foundation consists of two regional hubs based in East-Asia and Sub-Sahara Africa and a global team based in Europe, and is working together as one virtual organisation. Choices is governed by a Board and works with an International Scientific Committee and an Industry Support Group.
We are looking for a part-time Senior Consultant based in the Philippines, who will represent Choices as a country representative, to liaise with the government, science, and industry. The job is primarily focused on influencing and communicating with the Philippines government and policymakers on policies pertaining to promoting front-of-pack labelling and healthier foods in the country, to reduce the double burden of malnutrition.
