Harmonized nutrition label until March 2023

Italy

Nov 07, 2022

The European Commission will delay plans to adopt a Europe-wide harmonized nutrition label until March 2023, according to Italy’s EU delegation.

Instead, the commission will submit a new proposal for overall nutritional food labeling in Europe by the end of the year and make a final decision by the end of the second quarter in 2023.

The announcement was made after Nutri-Score, a traffic-light-style front-of-pack-label (FOPL) widely considered the front-runner, was criticized by food industry groups and Italian politicians at a roundtable debate of nutrition science held at the European Parliament.
