The GDA campaign has the support of some of UK's biggest food and drink manufacturers along with well known super markets - Tesco, Somerfield and Morrison.

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."
