LOOK BEYOND WHAT YOU CAN SEE
Foodtec started developing based on the Nutri-Score criteria right from the beginning in 2017. For instance, our OATIES concept is deeply rooted in the Nutri-Score philosophy. It scores a C-rating whilst most other biscuits struggle to get lower than E-score. Meanwhile we managed to develop biscuits with an A-score!
FYI, Nutri-Score is a front-of-pack nutritional label which converts the nutritional value of food and beverages into a simple overall score. It is based on a scale of 5 colours and letters (A is green to represent the best nutritional quality while E is dark orange to show it’s the lowest).
First implemented in France in 2017, but meanwhile other countries have also decided to formally accept the system for voluntary use in their domestic markets: Belgium (2018), Switzerland (2019), Germany (2020), Luxembourg (2020) and the Netherlands (2021).
