In order to ensure that the progress made benefits all consumers, collected data are analyzed on the basis of socio-economic parameters (types of brand, sales volumes and sometimes average prices).
The Oqali project aims at:
Collecting and analyzing nutritional and socio-economic data related to food products;
Monitoring changes in the food supply nutritional quality, by including retrospective dimensions to the greatest extent possible;
Clarifying and assessing public and private interventions with a view to ensuring a constant improvement of products food supply;
Supporting initiatives favoring the adoption of strategies aimed at improving the food supply nutritional quality and monitoring their implementation.
Data analyses are conducted by food sector (only for processed food). A differentiation is made according to the different types of brand (for example national brands, private labels, discount brands).
From these analyses, Oqali publishes:
Reports for each food sector, stating the changes in the food supply quality thanks to the follow-up of various indicators;
Multisectoral studies on various issues (including data from several food sectors).
Oqali’s publications can all be consulted on the French website - click here
The Oqali project makes it possible to objectively measure and publicly release information about food industry initiatives taken by stakeholders. This constant monitoring will serve to underpin - on a long-term basis - the partnership approach set up by the public authorities in order to encourage the various players of the food industry to meet public health objectives and consumer expectations.
