The Australian Industry Group (Ai Group) Confectionery Sector welcomes the opportunity to
make this submission in response to the draft National Obesity Prevention Strategy 2022-2032.
We provided comments on the previous consultation in December 2019, and reiterate
positions on issues raised then in this consultation. The Ai Group Confectionery Sector also
submitted to and attended the Senate Select Committee Inquiry into the Obesity Epidemic and participated in the National Obesity Summit.
Our comments in this submission focus on areas specifically related to the confectionery
industry, including the role we play in assisting consumers to make informed choices to
manage their energy intake and how the industry is contributing to collaborative activities with government and other partners and empowering consumers to continue to understand the role of confectionery, as a treat food.
