Feasibility study for a food labelling database

In collaboration with Arcadia International and Infeurope, VVA Europe contributed to a Feasibility study for a dedicated database containing all union and domestic food labelling rules and providing a simple way to identify concrete mandatory labelling requirements per product. The study, which was commissioned by the European Commission and DG MARKT, was completed in November 2014. The study involved inter alia an extensive stakeholder consultation (interviews and online survey), an analysis of existing databases, as well as the development and evaluation of different options on how to set up such a database.
