Heart Check Food Labelling Programme

The Heart Check Food Labelling programme is a front – of – pack labelling programme that certifies food items to be healthy for consumption and heart friendly. Foods with the certification mark represent products that are healthier choice compared to similar foods. While shopping, the logo supports you to make on the spot decision of healthier food option and encourages food manufacturers to improve the nutrition of their products. All products that carry the Nigerian Heart Foundation certification logo are independently tested to ensure they meet the Nigerian Heart Foundation nutrient criteria.
