Food Labelling - Introduction

In the European Union, rules are put in place on the labelling of foodstuffs to enable European consumers to get comprehensive information on the contents and the composition of food products. Labelling helps consumers to make an informed choice while purchasing their foodstuffs.

Address by David Byrne, European Commissioner for Health and Consumer Protection "Health, Nutrition and Labelling" Environment, Public Health and Consumer Protection Committee of the European Parliament, Brussels, 19 February 2003
