Consultation analysis on restricting promotion of food and drink high in fat, sugar, or salt

Perpetuity Research recently undertook a consultation analysis on behalf of the Scottish Government on ‘Restricting promotion of food and drink high in fat, sugar, or salt’. The purpose of the consultation carried out by the Scottish Government was to understand views in relation to proposed restrictions aiming to reduce the public health harm caused by over consumption of food and drink high in fat, sugar or salt. Consideration of different viewpoints is an important part of ensuring policy is proportionate and effective in meeting its aims. Once the consultation was complete, the purpose of the analysis undertaken by Perpetuity Research was to provide an independent assessment of the balance of opinion among respondents towards the proposals, along with an overview of the breadth and detail of arguments put forward both for and against the proposals.
