Abstract

A collaborative voluntary intervention between a local government authority and a higher education institution, in three takeaway outlets in a low income northern English community is examined. The intervention aimed to increase the availability, promotion and ultimately sale of healthier products in the takeaway outlets. The collaboration between stakeholders led to the successful use of semi-structured interviews and nutrient content determination to increase the sale of healthier products at all three participating takeaway outlets. The research has uncovered the potential of diligent collaborations between stakeholders for the implementation and success of health promotion interventions.
