Once again bringing together high-level speakers and delegates from Industry, EU and member state governments, NGOs and academia, this year’s conference provided an opportunity to evaluate the recent rulings on labelling and health claims and to look forward to new developments including the proposed revision of the PARNUTs directive, and the recent implementation of “Fat-Tax” schemes by EU member states. In addition, it took a detailed look at food innovation and reformulation, and the opportunities that these may provide for industry in helping to developing healthier options.
