Guidance Panel

New Zealand Beverage Guidance Panel

Currently researchers at the University of Auckland are establishing the New Zealand Beverage Guidance Panel (NZBGP). The panel will provide insight on the relative health benefits and risks of various beverage categories. The main short-term outcome of the NZBGP will be to develop a ‘Six point policy-brief’ that will offer recommendations to relevant sectors of influence. The sectors that this ‘policy-brief’ will seek to influence include: Government, Education, Industry, Advocacy, Health, and Community/NGO’s.
