Plan of Action for the Elimination of Industrially Produced Trans-Fatty Acids 2020-2025

This Plan of Action for the Elimination of Industrially Produced Trans-Fatty Acids 2020-2025 proposes to complete the removal of this harmful product by fully scaling up the adoption and implementation of IP-TFA elimination policies throughout the Americas. 

The Plan of Action is based on the evidence of health harms of trans-fatty acids; on prior resolutions and the work of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) and the World Health Organization (WHO); on analyses of the Region’s important progress on this issue to date, including lessons learned and challenges encountered in both voluntary and regulatory efforts to reduce or eliminate IP-TFA; and, lastly, on extensive input from consultations with Member States. This Plan of Action proposes a strategic course of action for Member States and for the Pan American Sanitary Bureau (PASB) between 2020 and 2025 that would lead to virtual elimination of IP-TFA from the food supply in the Americas by 2025.
