Our global commitment
IFBA members commit either to:
- Only advertise products to children under the age of 12 years that meet common nutrition criteria which are based on accepted science-based dietary guidance.
- Not to advertise their products at all to children under the age of 12 years.
The above policy covers food and beverage product marketing communications that are primarily directed to children under 12 in all covered media.
In addition, IFBA members agree not to engage in food or beverage product marketing communications to children in primary schools.
IFBA will publish yearly reports to demonstrate compliance with this policy.
This policy will become applicable to all IFBA member companies globally by 31 December 2016.
Individual member companies may maintain or adopt specific policies that go beyond the IFBA policy.
