Transcript of "Eversheds food and drink seminar - 26th September 2013 - Leeds"

  1. 1. Barbara Gallani Director Regulatory, Science and Health Nutrition Labelling: an overview of current and future requirements
  2. 2. Scope of the Regulation  Mandatory requirements for majority of pre-packed foods  Rules on voluntary provision:  Repetition of nutrition information  Non-pre packed foods  Alcoholic drinks  Does not apply to:  Food supplements (Directive 2002/46/EC)  Natural mineral waters (Directive 2009/54/EC)  Separate requirements in PARNUTS directives take precedence
  3. 3. Application Dates  Until 12 December 2014:  Can comply with either Food Labelling Regulations 1996 (as amended) or EU FIC  From13 December 2014 must comply if:  providing nutrition information on a voluntary basis  making a nutrition or health claim  From13 December 2016:  mandatory on all pre-packed foods
  4. 4. Mandatory Nutrition Declaration Typical values Energy Fat Saturates Carbohydrate Sugars Protein Salt Per 100g or per 100ml kJ/kcal g g g g g g
  5. 5. Supplementary Nutrients Typical values Per 100g or per 100ml Energy Fat Saturates Mono-unsaturates Polyunsaturates Carbohydrate Sugars Polyols Starch Fibre Protein Salt Vitamins and minerals kJ/kcal g g g g g g g g g g g Units specified
  6. 6. Vitamins and Minerals  Must be listed in Annex XIII of the Regulation  Must be present in significant amounts  15% NRV per 100g or 100 ml (except drinks)  7.5% NRV per 100ml (drinks only)  15% NRV if package contains a single portion size  Must provide details on the absolute amount and the % NRV
  7. 7. Calculating Nutrition Information  Three methods listed:  Manufacturer’s analysis of the food  A calculation from the known or actual average values of the ingredients used  A calculation from generally established and accepted data  EC has published guidance on tolerances  Note this varies if:  A claim is made  Vitamins and minerals are added to the food  EC has published guidance on roundings
  8. 8. Mandatory Nutrition Declaration Typical values Per 100g Energy Fat Saturates Carbohydrate 1205 kJ 290 kcal 11.8g 5.4g 29.4g Sugars Protein Salt 3.8g 14.2g 1.9g
  9. 9. Mandatory Plus Portion Typical values Fat Saturates Carbohydrate Per 100g Half a pizza 1205 kJ 1865kJ 290 kcal 445 kcal 11.8g 18.3g 5.4g 8.3g 29.4g 45.5g Sugars Protein Salt 3.8g 14.2g 1.9g Energy 5.9g 21.9g 2.9g
  10. 10. Mandatory Plus Portion and RI Typical values %RI per half pizza Fat Saturates Carbohydrate Per 100g Half a pizza 1205 kJ 1865kJ 290 kcal 445 kcal 11.8g 18.3g 5.4g 8.3g 29.4g 45.5g Sugars Protein Salt 3.8g 14.2g 1.9g 7% 44% 48% Energy 5.9g 21.9g 2.9g 22% 26% 42% 18%
  11. 11. Voluntary Repetition of Information  ‘Principal field of vision’ – front of pack  Specifies nutrients and order  Energy; or  Energy, Fat, Saturates, Sugars, Salt  Per 100g or per portion  Percentage RI information can be provided
  12. 12. Voluntary Repetition of Information
  13. 13. Additional Forms of Expression
  14. 14. UK Recommended Additional Form of Expression: The UK FoP Hybrid Scheme (… 14
  15. 15. FoP Hybrid Scheme Consultation 2012-13  May to Aug 2012 public consultation  Announcements by 10 major retailers - prepared to work on consistent scheme based on hybrid approach (colour coding and %reference intakes)  24th Oct Government announces work towards a scheme based on the hybrid approach  25th Oct Stakeholder Meeting - DH state intention to start with FSA criteria and undertake further modelling  Wider written consultation on technical aspects of scheme including thresholds for colour coding  Further Stakeholder meetings in Dec 2012 and Jan 2013 15
  16. 16. Hybrid Approach Announcement  Early March 2013 agreement from all 4 Governments across the UK on proposals for new scheme  15th March 2013 DH held stakeholder meeting to outline conclusions and proposed criteria and format  Wider consultation on final Government proposals  April 2013 submission to UK ministers  19th June 2013 UK Governments launch of the scheme 16
  17. 17. Main Technical Issues Considered     Per category or across category Food consumed in very small quantities Added vs total sugars Colour coding of calories 17
  18. 18. Legality of the scheme DH held informal meetings with the Commission throughout the development and consultation process On the basis of Articles 30 (3) and 35 of the EU FIC, the Commission considered:  Separate category criteria  Use of added sugars - Preference for standardised % cut-off (no judgement on specific nutrients) 18
  19. 19. FoP Criteria - Food  Green remains aligned to Nutrition Claims  Red is more than 25% Reference Intake per 100g or 30% in a portion Fat Saturates Total Sugars Salt Green ≤3.0g.0/100 g ≤1.5g/100g Amber >3.0g to =17.5g/100g >1.5g to = 5.0g/100g ≤5.0g/100g >5.0g to = 22.5g/100g ≤0.3g/100g >0.3g to = 1.5g/100g Red >17.5g/100g; >21g/portion >5.0g/100g; >6g/portion >22.5g/100g; >27g/portion >1.5g/100g; >1.8g/portion
  20. 20. FoP Criteria - Drink  Green remains aligned to Nutrition Claims  Red is more than 12.5% Reference Intake per 100g or 15% in a portion Green Amber ≤1.5g.0/100g >1.5g to =8.75g/100g Red >8.75g/100g; >10.5g/portion Total Sugars ≤0.75g/100g >0.75g to = 2.5g/100g ≤2.5g/100g >2.5g to = 11.25g/100g >2.5g/100g; >3g/portion >11.25g/100g; >13.5g/portion Salt ≤0.3g/100g >0.75g/100g; >0.9g/portion Fat Saturates >0.3g to = 0.75g/100g
  21. 21. What Next  Member States must inform the Commission of additional forms of expression they intend to recommend;  By Dec 2017 member states that have recommended and Additional Form of Expression have to provide additional information to enable the Commission to prepare a report. 21
  22. 22. UK Recommended Additional Form of Expression: The UK FoP Hybrid Scheme …) 22
  23. 23. Summary  Nutrition information per 100g is mandatory  What and how it is provided is specified  Nutrients, Units, Order  Additional information can be provided voluntarily  Additional nutrients, Information per portion, % Reference Intakes  Voluntary repetition of information – ‘front of pack’ – is also specified  Additional Forms of Expression  Application dates:   13 Dec 2014 (claim or voluntary provision) 13 Dec 2016 (mandatory on all pre-pack)
