This book by the International Labour Organisation asks important questions about food at work, including: employment conditions, wages and incomes, working hours and other forms of social protection. The book focuses on what governments, business, and civil society can do to raise the standards and nutritional implications for food at work. If businesses need convincing about the value of investing in workforce nutrition, there is a compilation of evidence on the price of poor nutrition. Strategies and case studies are comprehensive, covering canteens and cafeterias, meal vouchers, local vendors, mess rooms, clean drinking water, and provisions for families. This book is for everyone and has sections dedicated to international standards and government policy making.
