Abstract
This report by Corporate Europe Observatory (CEO), zooms in on food industry strategies derailing effective sugar regulation in the European Union. It looks at the way the industry lobby uses channels such as free trade rules and deregulation drives to undermine existing 
laws, tries to influence EU regulatory bodies, sponsors not-so-independent scientific studies, champions weak voluntary schemes, and spends billions on aggressive lobbying to protect its profits at the expense of European public health.
