      fear of abusive and destructive mass litigation,
      the group action was finally introduced in France by
      the new Consumer Law of 17March 2014. It came into
      force on 4 October 2014. The aim pursued by the

      claims in Denmark. In June 2014 the official food authority in Denmark issued a new guideline
      on nutrition and health claims. The new guideline makes for interesting reading and
      opens up new possibilities in a country where the official control of health claims is very

      The new Regulation (EU) 1169/2011 on the provision
      of food information to consumers (“FIC”) consolidates,
      but also modifies, existing legislation on food
      labelling. As far as information on allergens1 is concerned,
      it is no longer sufficient to indicate those substances
      on the label of prepacked foods. According

      Editorial
      The issue of health claims placed on botanicals remains a difficult one. More than
      2000 claims on botanical substances were put on hold in December 2011 and the situation
      has gotten worse since then. Increasing numbers of claims get rejected and listed
      as non-authorized in the register and their transition periods expire. Asking for a final
      assessment of all the claims on botanicals would be like wishing for hell on earth.
