Nutritional labelling consultation

THE BRITISH Retail Consortium has launched a consultation to seek views on what the new front of pack nutritional labelling system for food should look like.  



In October 2012, all four UK administrations made a joint announcement on the recommended approach to front of pack labelling – a hybrid scheme which includes traffic light indicators and percentage guideline daily amounts.


The consultation, which has been produced in collaboration with the Department of Health, asks interested parties how they want the new hybrid system for displaying nutritional information to be presented and positioned on food packaging.


The Department of Health will then draw on the consultation responses when it makes its national recommendation on the content and look of the new labelling system.
