Are you passionate about food and nutrition, skilled in research and report writing and looking to boost your experience in the area of (food) policies?
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.
