Around the World – EU: European Parliament Recommends Adoption of Europe-Wide Food Labels

Last month, the European Parliament adopted a non-binding resolution that calls for a stronger commitment from 27 European Union member states to cancer prevention.

The resolution “asks the [European] Commission and the member states to encourage and help consumers to make informed, healthy and sustainable choices about food products by means of the adoption of a mandatory and harmonized E.U. front-of-pack nutritional label that is developed based on robust and independent scientific evidence.”
