Abstract


  • South Africa has been a trailblazer on the continent in the global battle to reduce salt intake through food. But three years after the bold food policy was first introduced in South Africa – and less than a year until it finally becomes law – the country has still not set up programmes to monitor how effective the legislation will be.
