In the current global food market, consistent and equivalent food standards and fair food labelling are necessary to be harmonised for correct assessing the food nutritional profile in the benefit of the final consumer, for transparent and tailored food formulation and fair international trading. Well-comprehensive and easy- to- use graphical nutrition labelling tools need to be implemented in order to serve the final consumer in the daily food selection towards healthier choices suitable for its particular age, gender, health status, preferences, eating habits, etc. (Vintil?, 2021).
Audience Take Away Notes:
- Global harmonization of nutrition labelling
- Optimal solutions for the consumer choices
- Good ideas to be used by the consumer protection organizations
- Improvement of the food production worldwide
