A special general meeting in Bucharest in December 2018 to welcome the 10th country of the FOOD Consortium

Partners of the FOOD programme gathered in Bucharest, Romania, in order to exchange on the best practices in each country and on the new perspectives for the FOOD programme.

Romania, the latest country to have joined the Consortium (in August 2018) hosted the event and took the opportunity to officially launch the Programme in the country. A media event took place on December 6th where Romanian High Officials introduced the FOOD programme. Romania is committed to act in favour of healthy eating promotion at the workplace and raise awareness on this topic thanks to a strong public private partnership.

The general meeting then carried on with the national updates and exchanges about the yearly actions conducted in the member countries as well as the future developments to ensure the continuity of the programme.

This year, the focus was put on the digitalization of the communication and the FOOD Barometers’ results dissemination to restaurants and employees in order to get more adherence to the programme.

The partners also discussed about the 10th anniversary of the FOOD project that will take place in 2019.

This meeting was a great success thanks to the partners’ contribution and involvement and the positive dynamic brought by the new partners and contact points.
