EU public consultation on changes to food information rules

The European Commission has published its public consultation on the revision of Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 on the Provision of Food Information to Consumers.

The proposals out for consultation include:

  • Front of pack labelling
  • Extending mandatory origin labelling
  • Date marking (‘use by’ and ‘best before’)

This consultation also considers measures to tackle the harmful effects of alcohol such as making it mandatory to list ingredients and include a nutrition declaration.

The online public consultation, which requires an EU log in, closes on 7 March 2022 and can be completed at https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/better-regulation/have-your-say/initiatives/12749-Food-labelling-revision-of-rules-on-information-provided-to-consumers/public-consultation_en
