Front of pack nutrition labelling: British Retail Consortium (BRC) consultation on proposed format
This consultation seeks views on the BRC guidance proposal for front
of pack (FoP) nutrition labelling. The guidance is based on the
requirements of the EU Regulation 1169/2011 on the provision of food
information to consumers (EU FIC), as well as the UK health ministers’
stated preference for a hybrid FoP scheme: combining red, amber, green
colours with ‘% guideline daily amounts/reference intakes’. Responses
and queries are invited until Wednesday 27th February 2013.
