NL: Action plan for labelling of food products presented

27 October 2016

Minister Schippers has sent the action plan for the labelling of food products to the Dutch House of Representatives (Tweede Kamer). The goal of this action plan is to make sure consumers have objective information available to make an informed choice when they buy food products. To achieve this, clear legislation and strict enforcement are essential.
According to Minister Schippers, consumers should be properly educated about the information on the label and how this information should be read and interpreted. By using modern digital tools it is possible to reach a far larger number of consumers with the right information (Article Pack Online, 10 October 2016).
