Interactive workshop nutrition & health claims

Article Type: Food facts From: Nutrition

On 25 September 2007, 80 participants joined for a densely packed programme at the second Interactive Workshop Nutrition & Health Claims Europe which was held at the Radisson SAS Royal Hotel in Brussels, Belgium. In the morning session, a review and update was given of the Nutrition & Health Claims Regulation which was published in January 2007 (EC Nutrition and Health Claims Regulation No 1924/2006 of 20 Dec 2006) and came into force on 1 July 1 2007. This second Interactive Workshop on Nutrition and Health Claims in the EU gave an excellent update on where the European Foods & Drinks Industry and the EC stand on introducing Nutrition and Health Claims under the new Regulation. A third workshop might focus on how to bring innovation, novel ideas and strategies within this framework. Innovation indeed is one of the main objectives at the origin of the Nutrition and Health Claims Regulation. Go to the workshop website at: www.healthclaims.eu
