Effective date: in 2023

What changes?

Are you a food producer in the Netherlands? In 2023 you may put a Nutri-Score label on the packaging of healthy products.

By using the European food choice Nutri-Score label on your packaging, you show your consumers that they are buying a healthy product. The logo has a colour label from 'A' to 'E'. The green 'A' stands for healthy and the red 'E' for less healthy. For example, because of the use of sugars, calories, and salt.

You are not obliged to use the label. Do you want to use the Nutri-Score label? Then you must use the label on all of your products.

For whom?
