Voluntary front-of-pack nutritional labelling systems – primarily NUTRI-SCORE – have proven to be a factor with a significant ability to influence consumer purchasing decisions, which is why France, Belgium, Spain and Germany have announced their decision to publish regulations governing their use by companies. These countries are important in terms of their market and political influence in the EU, which increases the likelihood that front-of-pack nutritional labelling will be mandatory and standardised in the EU in the near future.

This project aims to improve the nutritional classification of meat products defined by the participating companies, in order to obtain a better position among consumers compared to competing products.

The objective of this project is to improve the nutritional classification of meat products by developing strategies for preparing ingredients and adapting their production processes.

Diagnosis of the current situation of meat products according to the NUTRI-SCORE nutritional classification labelling system.

  1. Identification of opportunities for incorporating new ingredients in the preparation of products.
  2. Development of preparation and process strategies to improve nutritional labelling.

The project is divided into five main activities:

  1. Diagnosis of the current situation of meat products produced by the participating companies according to the nutritional classification labelling system.
  2. Identification of opportunities for incorporating new ingredients in the preparation of meat products of interest.
  3. Development of preparation and process strategies to improve the nutritional labelling of meat products.
  4. Development of similar products.5.Communication and dissemination.
