HEALA works to build a healthy food environment by:
- Empowering all those who live in South Africa to make healthy food and lifestyle choices to prevent non-communicable diseases.
- Holding government accountable for meeting its constitutional mandate to develop and implement policies to promote sustainable access to healthy food, clean water and a healthy environment (Sections 24 and 27 of the Bill of Rights)
- Combatting how the dominance of Big Food companies distorts the production, distribution, marketing, and availability of food.
- Holding the ‘Big Food and Beverage’ companies accountable for the effects of their unhealthy products.
