Luxembourg's Ministry of Consumer Protection has announced that the use of the Nutri-Score label is now authorised in the Grand Duchy.
On Tuesday 25 May 2021, the Grand-Ducal regulation relating to the use of Nutri-Score labelling was published. Luxembourg companies can therefore use the Nutri-Score label on their products, in accordance with the rules provided.
In 2017, France developed and implemented the Nutri-Score nutritional labelling system. The system, which provides information on the nutritional quality of food, allows consumers to compare products in the same category at a glance. Given that this label is also in use in Belgium, Germany and other European countries and that Luxembourg imports a large part of its food products, consumers in the Grand Duchy may have already seen this labelling system.
Companies wishing to use the Nutri-Score label and who have any questions can contact the Government Commissariat for Quality, Fraud and Food Safety via email: email@example.com.
The Ministry of Consumer Protection is also launching an information campaign to better inform consumers about the system.
