France: use of Nutri-score label could be brought forward

The use of the Nutri-score label In France should become law from January 1st 2021, only in food advertising.  Whoever doesn’t insert it will have to pay a contribution to public health, which will be calculated on the basis of the annual sum destined for advertising.
 
But in his last declaration of general politics, Prime Minister Edouard Philippe confirmed the wish of the French government to render the use of Nutri-score on all food labels obligatory; it is still advisory.
