Question for written answer E-001980-16
to the Commission
Rule 130
Miriam Dalli (S&D)

 Subject:  European cooperation on healthy food
 Answer in writing 

At a recent conference under the auspices of the Dutch EU Presidency, Member States, other European countries and stakeholders agreed to make food products healthier by reducing salt, saturated fat and sugar content.

During this conference, the Roadmap for Action on Food Product Improvement, a voluntary initiative of the current Dutch EU Presidency, was unveiled. This roadmap for action is intended to address the fact that in Europe, the number of people suffering from diabetes, cardiovascular diseases and obesity is still on the rise.

1. Will this initiative be included in the single European market cooperation, to make a healthier choice easier for consumers?

2. Does the Commission anticipate issuing guidelines on how salt, saturated fats and sugar will be reduced in food products?

3. What additional legislative mechanism does the Commission intend to propose to make food products healthier?
