New Nutri-Score food choice label

This information is provided by:Netherlands Enterprise Agency, RVONetherlands Enterprise Agency, RVONederlandse versieEffective date: 1 January 2024

What changes?

Are you a food producer in the Netherlands? You can put a Nutri-Score as a food choice logo on your products.

By using the European food choice Nutri-Score label on your packaging, you show your consumers that they are buying a more healthy product as compared to similar products. 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?
