GLOBAL UPDATE ON NUTRITION LABELLING 22/01/15

Author: EUFIC

Nutrition labelling is the provision of information about the nutritional content of individual food products. It is most commonly applied to pre-packaged food and beverage products, but comes in a variety of formats. Variables include: the type and number of nutrients labelled, the reference values used, whether the information appears on front-of-pack (FOP) or back-of-pack (BOP) and whether the label gives any interpretative guidance to the consumer.

The rise of overweight and obesity has focused policymakers’ attention on the provision of nutrition information as it is hailed as an important instrument in promoting healthier eating habits. In some countries, government regulations for nutrition labelling have been in place for many years; others have only recently developed a statutory framework for the provision of nutrition information.

In both circumstances, the provision of nutrition information on the FOP is becoming an increasingly prominent policy issue. Meanwhile, voluntary FOP nutrition labelling initiatives proliferate. A number of studies in recent years have examined how consumers perceive and use nutrition labels and assessed consumer preferences for different nutrition labelling schemes. This Global Update seeks to provide a comprehensive overview of the state of play on the issue today.
