Nutri-Score - Call from European scientists - Signature form
Call from European scientists to implement Nutri-Score in Europe, a simple and transparent front-of-pack food label with rigorous scientific support, intended to guide dietary choices and thus contribute to chronic disease prevention
In May 2020, the European Commission (EC) announced as part of its Farm to Fork Strategy the adoption before the end of 2022 of a harmonised mandatory front-of-pack nutrition labelling to help consumers to make health-conscious food choices.
Scientists and public health actors welcome the announcement of such a public health policy, which, they have been calling for for many years and is also recommended by WHO Europe and strongly supported by major European consumer associations.
The signatories of this call wish to remind that only science should guide policy decision-making in the field of public health and that the choice of the single harmonised front-of-pack nutrition label for Europe must meet this single requirement and not the interests of economic operators (manufacturers, retailers or specific food sectors) or states that defend them.
