Blog: Nutrition labelling podcast
Catherine Sleep | 17 January 2007
It can’t have escaped your attention that food labelling legislation is an extremely hot topic at the moment. One of the thorniest angles of the debate concerns consumer awareness. Do consumers know how much they should be eating? Do they know the energy content of the foods they eat? Do consumers read the nutrition information on label? Do they understand what it means, and do they use it when choosing foods?
The European Food Information Council (EUFIC) has invested a great deal of time and effort in addressing these questions, and has just released a podcast bringing together insights into how nutrition information on pack is used by consumers around the world. It centres on a 15 minute round table debate recorded at the First World Congress of Public Health Nutrition, and features EUFIC director general Josephine Wills, as well as experts from Asia, Canada and the US. It’s well worth a look.
