EU Public Consultation - Nutrition and Health Claims

Wednesday, 8 March 2017

The EU Commission has opened a public consultation which aims to collect the views of citizens on the ongoing review of the EU Regulation on nutrition and health claims made on foods and how plant substances used in foods are regulated in the EU. In particular, it seeks to obtain information on how citizens, as potential consumers of foods marketed with nutrition or health claims, understand these claims and other nutrition information provided on the label of a food product, how they perceive the healthiness of foods making such claims and what specific elements drive their food choices.

Further information at http://ec.europa.eu/dgs/health_food-safety/dgs_consultations/food/consultation_20170302_nutrition-health-claims_en.htm

The consultation will remain open until Thursday, 1 June 2017
