No consensus in the Council of Agriculture Ministers for frontal labeling in food

Dec 31, 2020

Also in public session, ministers discussed the draft conclusions on front-of-pack nutrition labelling (FOPNL), nutrient profiles and origin labelling, as prepared by the presidency. Ministers generally agreed on the importance of an EU harmonised FOPNL, also with a view to promoting healthy and sustainable diets. They also encouraged the European Commission to prepare a legislative proposal based on a comprehensive impact assessment. While there was broad support from member states for the text prepared by the presidency there was no consensus. With the support of 23 member states, the presidency will issue the text as presidency conclusions.
