This project will bring about science-based evidence on how nutrition information on food labels affects consumer behaviour and dietary intake. This evidence has to be turned into actionable implications. This work package will focus on the implications for public policy, retailers, industry and SMEs.
Consortium partners will derive implications for public policy in the area of food labelling and health claims and develop proposals for the assessment of the effect of existing or upcoming legislation. Furthermore, implications for industry on the use of nutrition information on food labels will be derived, taking into account effects on competitiveness.
In addition to desk research, key informant interviews, and workshop sessions will take place to ensure that the implications reflected in the final documents, accurately reflect the opinions of the broad stakeholder base.
