Nutriscore: 7 EU countries, DOP and IGP should be left out

'The Label has to take into account national differences'

18 September, 15:35
(ANSA) - BRUSSELS, 18 SET - Nutriscore, the European nutrition label, should leave out DOP and IGP products and mono-ingredient products such as olive oil, as it should take into account the dietary guidelines of each country. These are the proposals in a document that Italy and six other EU countries (Czech Republic, Cyprus, Greece, Hungary, Latvia, and Romania) will submit to agriculture ministers in the Council scheduled for next Monday.

A "harmonized at EU level" nutrition label, the document reads "should educate people and consider food in the more general context of healthy and balanced diets, and be voluntary, with the possibility for the Member States to make it mandatory." (ANSA).
