Food labelling ‘at a glance’

Dawn-Ryddner-RubikTrawling through the news, one positive article caught my eye. Food labelling. It is once again in the headlines with a new front-of-pack design to be implemented in the UK in the next 18 months. This voluntary choice has Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Morrisons, The Co-operative, Waitrose, Mars, Nestle, PepsiCo and Premier Foods in favour of the new system whilst Coca-Cola and Cadbury feel that the use of the Guideline Daily Amounts (GDA) is a better system. Although there are pro and cons to the new labelling after a long decade of debate, as a consumer, I am for the bigger, more upfront labels.
