Metabolic disorders such as cardiovascular diseases and type 2 diabetes are increasingly understood to be associated with occupational factors such as job strain and working hours.  Despite the role of diet in the aetiology of cardiometabolic disease being well established, gaps remain in understanding the relationships between occupational exposures, diet and cardio-metabolic health. Research undertaken in Workplace Diet and Health includes i) investigating the influence of occupational factors (working hours and environment) on diet and cardio-metabolic health, ii) exploring the evidence to support work place nutrition interventions and iii) the development of strategies to improve employee nutritional wellbeing.
