Food Marketing and Countermarketing:
Charting New Options for New York City

Part of the CUNY Urban Food Policy Institute's Urban Food Policy Forum series

This session will analyze trends in food marketing and consider policy responses to reduce exposure to unhealthy food marketing. Among the questions to be considered are: How has the rise of new media technologies changed food marketing? How have food industries targeted unhealthy food marketing to Black and Latino communities and young people? What lessons can we learn from tobacco countermarketing to combat the aggressive marketing of unhealthy food? What legal strategies are available to limit food marketing in various settings? What else can New York City do to empower and protect vulnerable communities from unhealthy food marketing?
