The joint action « Best ReMap” (Joint Action on Implementation of Validated Best Practices in Nutrition), coordinated by the National Institute of Public Health (NIJZ) in Slovenia and co-financed by the third Health Program of European Union (2014-2020) has been launched on 1rst October 2020 for 36 months. It gathers 36 partners from 24 European countries who work in public health.

Its goal is to fight against obesity, mainly for children. Anses is heading this project for France with the General Directorate of Health (DGS) and Santé publique France (SpF). Anses is in charge of the section dedicated to monitoring the food nutritional composition to allow reformulations, and with the collaboration of DGS and SpF, Anses contribute to elaborate good practices in terms of advertisements for children and teenagers. As part of the joint action, information available on food packaging, especially for 5 priority food categories will be collected between 2021 and 2023 in 19 European countries, following the Oqali model. Oqali’s classification has been adjusted to correspond to the European market and has been transferred to partners to be used by other countries. The launch meeting for the joint action was held by video-meeting on 29th and 30th October 2020.
