This Project aims to generate new knowledge on how to effect public policy to reduce the supply and consumption of a health-harming commodity: ultra-processed foods (UPF). Using governance theory and qualitative techniques we intend to identify the actors who are influential in three key policy areas (Trade/Taxation/Marketing) that affect the consumption of these foods in Australia, Thailand and Fiji, and what kinds of strategies work best to pursue these different actorâ€™s interests. This evidence will inform the ways in which institutions and organisations can work to promote better policy that leads to good nutrition outcomes.
