SUSTAINABLE NUTRITION FOOD LABELS AND CLAIMS: WHAT’S NEXT WITH THE F2F? – LIVE TALK
Food Labels and Claims: What’s Next with the F2F?
TUESDAY 14 JULY – h. 3PM (CET)
The Farm to Fork strategy is a key component of the European Green Deal, announced by the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen in December 2019. While European food is generally regarded as being safe, nutritious and of high quality, von der Leyen believes that it should now also become the global standard for sustainability (including the system of food labels and claims).
To promote sustainable food consumption, the Commission will, amongst others, propose actions to help consumers choose healthy and sustainable diets by providing better food information such as on where the food comes from and its nutritional value.
This, however, will require clear, easily understood and uniform front of pack (FOP) labelling, widely lacking in the European Union at the present time, where a variety of systems, including the French Nutri-Score, British Traffic Light, Swedish Keyhole and Italian Nutrinform classifications are all competing for influence.
What will be the scenario for food labelling and claims? Will Farm to Fork make food labelling the EU’s next north-south battleground?
We discussed about this with two major experts of food law and regulation, and nutrition science.
