As part of our aim to inspire and propose solutions for improving the healthiness of the retail food environments, we have collated examples of initiatives, that have been implemented around the world, using these four methods or combinations of these methods. We hope that by providing a central hub for work (largely voluntary) within this area, retailers, researchers and policy makers within the EAP region will be inspired to take action to improve their own food environments.
