Predmet ovog programa odnosi se na označivanje hrane.


7. Notification Under Another Act
—Uredba (EZ) br. 1924/2006 o prehrambenim i zdravstvenim tvrdnjama koje se navode na hrani
— Direktiva 2000/13/EZ o označivanju, prezentiranju i oglašavanju hrane


8. Main Content
Ovaj program određuje Nutri-Score kao logotip izbora hrane. Nutri-Score dobrovoljni je logotip za odabir hrane koji pomaže potrošačima da donose zdravije odluke prilikom kupnje unutar skupine proizvoda. Nutri-Score se utvrđuje se dodjeljivanjem bodova za količine bjelančevina, vlakana, voća, povrća, mahunarki i orašastih plodova sadržanih u hrani. Bodovi se oduzimaju od te ocjene za energetski sadržaj (kilokalorije), količine šećera, zasićenih masti i soli. Na temelju ukupnog rezultata, proizvod dobiva oznaku A, B, C, D ili E (od zdravih do najmanje zdravih). Logotip Nutri-Score mora se upotrebljavati u skladu s međunarodnim uvjetima uporabe. Nizozemski prijevod (koji je još u izradi) objavit će se na internetskoj stranici koju treba utvrditi. Kada koriste Nutri-Score, poduzeća koja posluju s hranom trebaju postaviti logotip na prednjoj strani hrane. To pomaže potrošačima da na prvi pogled vide koji je proizvod zdraviji izbor.


9. Brief Statement of Grounds
Nizozemska namjerava usvojiti logotip „Nutri-Score” koji je razvio Santé Publice France i koji je registriran pri Uredu Europske unije za intelektualno vlasništvo (EUIPO). Neovisno istraživanje potrošača usporedilo je tri logotipa za odabir hrane koji se trenutačno upotrebljavaju u europskim zemljama. Ispitano je u kojoj mjeri ti logotipi pomažu potrošačima da donesu zdrav odabir. Ispitivanje potrošača pokazuje da se s logotipom Nutri-Score potrošače najbolje može usmjeriti prema zdravijem izboru. Na policama trgovina slični proizvodi mogu se lako i brzo usporediti: na prvi pogled, potrošači mogu vidjeti koji je proizvod najzdraviji izbor. To čini zdrav izbor lakim izborom.
U Europskoj uniji nije dopušteno odbiti robu koja se zakonito stavlja na tržište u jednoj državi članici u drugoj državi članici ako roba nije u skladu s nacionalnim pravilima te države članice. Države članice ne smiju zabraniti prodaju takve robe na svojem državnom području, pod uvjetom da takva roba pruža jednaku razinu zaštite. To je načelo uzajamnog priznavanja, koje je 2015. uključeno u članak 13.d Zakona o robi. Stavak 1. tog članka sadržava klauzulu o uzajamnom priznavanju robe za ili na temelju Zakona o robi.

 Avianza's considerations regarding Nutriscore front-of-pack labeling

 

Within the framework of the interest of governments to watch over the health and quality of their citizens, different administrations have introduced in their territories different types of nutritional labeling. One of them, specifically the French "Nutriscore" system, has been the one in which the Spanish authorities have been interested as an option to introduce it in our country. 

After a careful evaluation of this system, from Avianza, Spanish Interprofessional Association of Poultry Meat, we found that this model is not fully adapted to the needs of consumers because of its ambiguity and its ineffectiveness in differentiating between healthy and unhealthy products, being based solely on the calories contained in the food. 

Meat and meat products offer consumers important nutrients, since they are a source of essential amino acids, as well as vitamins and minerals, essential for the correct development and functioning of the organism at all stages of life. 

Therefore, we consider that "Nutriscore" labeling is detrimental to both consumers and producers, and therefore to the European market, by providing data based solely on the caloric value of foods, thus offering biased and distorted information, far from the Mediterranean diet, healthy and varied, based on natural, healthy and sustainable products, which benefit the health and quality of life of consumers. 

Nutriscore focuses on giving foods one of five letter ratings, with "A" being a preferable score and "E" a detrimental score. Only seven different parameters of nutritional information per 100 g of food are involved in the calculation of the score. This calculation does not take into account the exact quantities consumed, which ends up confusing the consumer even more. 

For all these reasons, we consider that the introduction of the Nutriscore font type labeling in our country is not an appropriate choice to preserve consumer protection, as well as the transparency of food economic operators and food safety.

From Avianza, we consider that a front labeling should take into account the scientifically recognized nutritional properties, as well as the individual macronutrients provided by foods, and include specific nutritional information, essential to follow a healthy lifestyle and fight against diet-related diseases.
