Brief description

Tower Hamlets PCT has been awarded funding under the government's Healthy Towns initiative to develop a range of initiatives designed to address the high levels of overweight and obesity in the borough.  A Food 4 Health Award Scheme has been launched to encourage Fast Food Outlets to offer a healthier range of food options on their menus. The Cities Institute working in conjunction with the university's Food Business Development Manager were asked to develop a business engagement strategy that would assist with the implementation of the scheme.  The development of this strategy has involved a survey of Fast Food Outlets and their customers, as well as interviews with suppliers and local business support agencies. The final report can be  downloaded here.
