Front-of-Pack Nutritional Labelling,

09 Sep, 2021

EU’s ‘Farm-to-Fork’ strategy includes several initiatives to improve food information to consumers, among which the proposal for a FOP nutrition labelling , a simplifled nutrition information in the front of food packaging to help consumers in making informed and healthy choice ,and also encourages food manufacturers to improve the composition of their products.

EU Commission announced that it will propose a mandatory harmonised FOP nutrition labelling system by end of 2022.

This has prompted intensified debate as member states disagree on which labelling system best help consumers identify healthier products Some argue that they are oversimplified and can mislead consumers.

What about in the case of specialist foods ? Does science based FOP labelling obligations appropriately reflect the purposes of these foods ?

What are the current regulatory developments and rules on food information ?  Which label is best suited for EU-wide adoption ? How will other schemes that have been developed over the years and accepted by the food industry – adapt to new standards if EU adopts a standardised approach ?

What are food companies advocating ? As food products are traded across borders , many support a harmonised approach across the EU.

Apart from EU, the US is rapidly developing new set of labelling rules for food information. Where do they currently stand ?

It is agreed that FOP labels should be consumer-friendly, easy-to-understand. Standardized symbols and colours need to effectively illustrate the nutrition declaration so that consumers can check, compare and choose between products.
