Question for written answer  E-000671/2021
to the Commission
Rule 138
Manolis Kefalogiannis (PPE)
 Answer in writing 
 Subject: Concerns of Greek producers regarding the Nutri-score labelling system

Once again, Greek producers and their trade associations are expressing great concern about the proposed Nutri-score food labelling system, which is to be used throughout the European Union as part of the F2F strategy, because traditional Greek products, such as olive oil, olives and feta are unfairly labelled as less healthy choices than sugar-free carbonated soft drinks or energy drinks.

In view of this:

1. Will the Commission modify the Nutri-score algorithm in order to achieve a more reliable assessment of all major food ingredients, factoring in other parameters, such as their energy footprint and the way in which they are produced and processed?

2. Will it classify extra-virgin olive oil as category A, given its high nutritional value and its great social and environmental merits, which are well documented and substantiated by EFSA assessments?

3. Will it exempt all natural and/or single-ingredient foods from compulsory FOPL nutrition labelling?
