The recent traffic light labeling system proposed by Blewett Food Labeling Law focuses on providing information about sodium, fat, saturated fat and sugar content for manufactured food products.

Explaining that the proposed Traffic Light Labeling System may not achieve the intended results, Sanitarium's General Manager, Pierre van Heerden said, "The aim of any front of pack labeling should be to help improve eating habits in line with other government initiatives. We have developed and researched a concept that does that. It goes beyond ranking individual food nutrients and provides additional recommendations on the best way to incorporate a range of foods into your diet."
