EU: CIAA unveils voluntary labelling scheme
A voluntary scheme for providing nutrition labelling on drinks sold in the EU has been agreed by manufacturers' association the EU Confederation of Food and Drink Industries (CIAA).
The labels will include nutrients, nutrition content per drink and guidelines for daily amounts (GDAs).
An EU directive to enforce nutritional labelling - which goes further than the CIAA proposals - is also being considered by the EU's legislative bodies.
The CIAA has repeated that the current directive should be simplified.
