Example of a GDA label
Members of the Food and Drink Federation are convinced that nutrition labelling is a powerful tool to help improve the food literacy of UK consumers.
Peer-reviewed research by influential organisations such as European Food
Information Council (EUFIC), as well as our own research, confirms our belief
that food labelling is making a difference for British consumers.
Our success here in the UK is being replicated across Europe – where GDA
labelling is being rolled out on a voluntary basis in all 27 EU Member States.
European Institutions have now finalised and adopted the new food labelling
regulation which, for the first time, recognises the use of Guideline Daily
(GDAs) and authorises their use on a voluntary basis.
