instalment in our Food for Thought series

Corporate Rehabilitation and Food Marketing

Professor Janet Hoek, University of Otago

Since becoming implicated in the global obesity crisis, manufacturers of energy-dense, nutrient-poor, foods have developed sophisticated marketing strategies to rehabilitate their brands.

These strategies shift responsibility from corporations to consumers, pre-empt policy, and support sales.

This seminar will briefly review marketing strategies before exploring recent debates and implications for public health advocacy.

 Janet is a professor in the Departments of Public Health and Marketing.

Her main research interests are in the public health-marketing-policy nexus, and she has mostly been involved in the smokefree and nutrition spheres.

Janet is co-Director of ASPIRE 2025, has been a member of several NGO and government advisory groups, and has published widely on smokefree initiatives.

Registrations close 5pm Monday 25th June 2018

Thank you to Weave Together for their support.
