Question for written answer E-000612/2020
to the Commission
Rule 138
Nadine Morano (PPE)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Harmonisation of nutrition labelling

That EU consumers are able to enjoy food that is of good quality must continue to be a priority for the European Union.

The Nutri-score, which uses five grades to rate the nutritional value of food (from A for the healthiest to E for food with the least nutritional value) has been adopted by several Member States, for instance France, Belgium and Spain. It allows consumers to see quickly and instantly the nutritional value of food they are purchasing.

The European Union has, in the past, set up several labelling systems which have proved their worth, such as energy labelling for domestic appliances, something that is commonplace nowadays.

In this context, and in the interests of consumer health, does the Commission envisage proposing that nutrition labelling for food products be standardised using a rating system such as the Nutri-score or a similar scale?
