On December 13th, the EU Commission launched two public consultations as follow up of the F2F strategy. The initiatives focus on ‘nutrient profiles’, (namely thresholds for certain nutrients such as fats, sugars and/or salt to regulate the use of health claims) and on the revision of rules on labelling information, i.e., product origin, front-of-pack nutrition labelling, and date marking.
The consultations will run until 7th March 2022 and their aim is helping consumers make healthier and more sustainable food choices, and stop food waste.

Members are invited to share their feedback on the consultation for preparing the FRUCOM feedback by end February.
