(Brussels, 23 May 2017) On the occasion of the European Business Summit, as part of a panel on “Sustainable Living: Foresights for 2050”, FoodDrinkEurope launched today a Call for Action to help improve diets and promote good nutrition and health. In so doing, the organisation of Europe’s food and drink industry calls upon all interested parties and stakeholders to join forces and look ahead to tackle together today’s societal challenges related to nutrition and health.
Europe is the cradle of the manufacturing industry and has been at the forefront of industrial revolutions and technological innovations. The industry directly employs over 34 million people across all Member States, in supply chains comprising hundreds of thousands of SMEs and larger suppliers. It also indirectly accounts for millions of additional jobs in related sectors.
(Brussels, 19 January 2017) In view of the upcoming vote in the European Parliament on the draft report of the revised EU Waste legislation, Europe’s food and drink manufacturers reaffirm their commitment to integrate food waste prevention and resource efficiency into their own operations and all parts of their supply chain.
(Brussels, 13 December 2016) FoodDrinkEurope welcomes the implementation, as of today, of new nutrition labelling rules foreseen by the Regulation on the provision of food information to consumers . Following the application of the general labelling rules two years ago, the new rules represent a further step to provide consumers with factual and comparable information about the nutritional content of products.
