Launching of F2F Strategy by EU Commission May 2020 set a number of challenges both to agri-food value chain and related stakeholders. F2F Strategy is part of European Green Deal.
The Challenges we are discussing in this position related to the actions aiming to healthier and sustainable nutrition.
We refer to nutrition improvement action taken by Food Operators in Greece and across EU since 2007 and action carrying out today.
We discuss the “one-side approach” taken by EU Commission, focusing only on Nutrition labelling rules, allowing broader communication plans out of public consultation, discussing food operators concerns, on the effectiveness such approach.
Additionally, we comment on recent scientific publication trends under the umbrella of Ultra Processed Foods, the scientific validation of used classification system, and their real contribution to prevention of non-transmissible diseases throw nutrition.
