UNESDA comments submitted to European Commission Farm to Fork consultation
Today UNESDA submitted comments to the European Commission’s consultation on its Roadmap for the new EU ‘Farm-to-Fork’ strategy. Europe’s soft drinks industry is keen to play a constructive role in the transition to more sustainable food systems and in facilitating the shift towards healthy and sustainable diets.
Our submission focuses on some of the key requirements of our sector in supporting the drive towards healthy diets and calls for a multi-faceted approach that involves all stakeholders as well as policy decisions based on sound science and evidence.
Consumer information and labelling is a hot topic at the moment, with different systems proliferating across Europe. UNESDA outlines its belief in the need for a harmonised, pan-EU approach on front-of-pack nutrition labelling that is meaningful, informative and relevant to consumers.
