Evidence on food information – Empowering consumers to make healthy and sustainable choices
The European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) publishes the results of four scientific studies related to food information to consumers.
The European Commission will use the findings of these studies as input for a proposal to revise the EU rules on the information provided to consumers as part of the EU’s ‘Farm-to-Fork’ Strategy and Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan.
Labelling can help consumers make informed, healthy and sustainable food choices.
The JRC conducted four scientific studies to synthesise the current evidence on front-of-pack nutrition labelling, origin labelling and food information through other means than on labels as well as to analyse what is currently present on the market as regards the labelling of alcoholic beverages.
