Diets high in energy, saturated fat, added sugars and salt are contributing to increasing incidences of non-communicable diseases. The George Institute's Food Policy team works to address this issue by undertaking research and advocacy in relation to the food supply including monitoring the composition of foods. As part of this, the Food Label Trial seeks to compare 5 different food labels to identify from these labels which to the best in assisting people to make healthier choices.
The Food Policy is therefore seeking casual administration assistants to assist with matching shopping receipts to a food dataset.
