Labeling has been a dominant issue in the food and beverage space for decades. There are multiple ways to present information to consumers about the products they purchase, but little agreement on how best to do that. Minister Klockner seems to believe Germany has found a solution in "nutri-score," a scale of colors and letters designed to easily convey the nutritional quality of products. But as this article notes, while other European governments have opted to use nutri-score as their scheme of choice, the are plenty of critics.
Germany’s Federal Minister for Food and Agriculture, Julia Klöckner, says she expects food manufacturers to use Nutri-Score after the controversial food labelling scheme was officially introduced in the country earlier this month.
