La nourriture transformée profite de la pandémie pour s’imposer dans les pays pauvres

Les compagnies qui produisent des aliments transformés ont profité de la COVID pour faire changer la réglementation et se faire passer pour des produits essentiels.

A recent report by the organisation Global Health Advocacy Incubator highlights how food and beverage corporations used the COVID-19 pandemic as an opportunity to promote their ultra-processed foods to vulnerable populations around the world.  The report includes over 280 examples from 18 countries of the food industry undermining healthy food policy efforts. This was done through lobbying to classify (unhealthy) ultra-processed foodstuffs as “essential products” during the pandemic. They also improved their brand image through providing financial and other support to needy communities, frontline workers, food banks, and small businesses while still marketing unhealthy products and pushing against healthy food policies.

L’article propose quelques solutions pour l’imposition d’un système qui favorise de meilleures habitudes alimentaires pour les pays qui ont peu de moyen.

En attendant, paraît que le futur de la chaîne d’approvisionnement en aliment se trouve à Montréal.
