Council finalizes its first reading on new food labelling rules

The Council of the European Union held on 21st February 2011 adopted its first-reading-position on a draft regulation on food information to consumers (17602/10 + 17602/10 ADD 1 + 17602/10 ADD 1 COR 1 + 5964/11 + 5964/11 ADD 1). This new piece of legislation aims to ensure that food labels carry essential information in a clear and legible way, thereby enabling consumers to make balanced and healthier dietary choices. One of the key elements of the Council's position is the mandatory nature of the nutrition declaration: the labelling of the energy value and of the quantities of fat, saturates, carbohydrates, protein, sugars and salt would become compulsory.
