GDA campaign director Jane Holdsworth said, "We have made it simple to compare what's inside thousands of everyday foods so you can choose what best suits your diet."

The GDA labeling is part of the growing initiative to promote healthy eating, and is already witness to perceptible changes in the buying behavior of consumers. A spokesman of Tesco said, "Our sales data shows customers are using it to make changes towards healthier foods. We have seen it in ready meals, sandwiches and other product categories."
