Nutrition Labelling Survey

Kindly answer the questions below

On behalf of the Food Safety Commission (FSC), the Technical Regulations Division within the Malta Competition & Consumer Affairs Authority (MCCAA_TRD) would like to kindly invite you to complete the following Nutrition Labelling Survey.

According to Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011 on the provision of food information to consumers, ‘nutrition labelling’ is defined as information stating the:

(a) energy value; or (b) energy value and one or more of the following nutrients only:

  • fat (saturates, mono-unsaturates, polyunsaturates),
  • carbohydrate (sugars, polyols, starch),
  • salt,
  • fibre,
  • protein,
  • any of the vitamins or minerals listed in point 1 of Part A of Annex XIII, and present in significant amounts as defined in point 2 of Part A of Annex XIII.

Nutrition information is made available to the final consumer by means of a label, other accompanying material, or any other means including modern technology tools.

Nutrition information is provided to ensure protection of consumers’ health and interests. It allows consumers to make informed choices and to make safe use of food, with regards to health, economic, environmental, social and ethical considerations.

Please note that the scope of the Nutrition Labelling Survey is to gather information on the variety of food labelling which is available to the consumer on the Maltese market.

Food business operators may opt to remain anonymous to guarantee privacy and protection of the data provided.

Participants are kindly asked to send the completed survey to the following email address: by Friday 2nd April 2021.

Thanking you in advance for your co-operation.
