Star: PETALING JAYA: The fast food industry has been given two weeks to fine-tune its proposal to the Health Ministry on issues such as dietary labelling and advertisements.
The proposal would be submitted to Health Minister Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.
The ministry’s food safety and quality division director Dr Abd Rahim Mohamad said yesterday the first technical committee meeting on the matter emphasised on the ministry’s needs and social obligation of the fast food industry.
The committee would decide later on the need to have legislation such as banning television advertisements during programmes for children under 12.
