This document summarizes the highlights of a knowledge synthesis on nutrition-labelling policies: the effectiveness of these policies in the fight against obesity, their unintended effects, their equity-related issues, their costs, feasibility, and acceptability for stakeholders.

This knowledge was gathered and synthesized by constructing the logic model for nutrition labelling, reviewing the scientific and grey literatures, and organizing deliberative processes which brought together Canadian stakeholders involved in the fight against obesity.
