      a great extent starting 13December 2014. The rise of this new legal framework demonstrates
      many changes compared to the prior system. Two core elements of the new
      provision are revised: nutrition declaration and origin labelling for primary ingredients

      The term “natural” in food labelling is increasingly used by producers to indicate that their

      to confusion among consumers as well as food producers and legislators and t

      Editorial
      When it comes to food, a specific group of today’s consumers attach great importance
      to soft factors such as the food being organic, local, fair trade, natural or having a low
      carbon footprint. They often do so without knowing what these terms actually mean
      and have an aversion against technology and scientific processes used in food production.
      Nonetheless, they demand safe, fresh, convenient, durable and attractive food.
