Event Description

Ten years after the European Commission’s “White paper on a Strategy for Europe on Nutrition, Overweight and Obesity-related health issues”, the European Snacks Association gathers stakeholders to discuss the lessons learned and explore ways of building consensus on effective future policy.

What role for the European Parliament? Should the European Commission be more, or less, ambitious? What is the appropriate level of intervention? How can the food and drink                                                                          sector positively contribute?

Join us on 22 November to exchange views with our panellists on the future of EU Nutrition and Health Policy
