EU consumers benefit from better labelling as of 13 Dec 2014

11 December 2014

As of 13 December 2014, new EU food labelling rules, adopted by the European Parliament and the Council in 2011, will ensure that consumers receive clearer, more comprehensive and accurate information on food content, and help them make informed choices about what they eat.
The Commission has been working together with businesses to ensure that the new rules will be properly implemented. Work is also underway on developing an EU database to facilitate the identification of all EU and national mandatory labelling rules in a simple way. The work for the creation of the database should be carried out during 2015 (European Commission Press Release, 11 December 2014).
