The nutritional labelling of food sold in the UK is the most comprehensive in the EU, a European Commission survey has found.

The survey, which investigated nutritional labelling among the EU member states, found that 75% of all UK products surveyed were labelled with nutritional values.

Spain (54%), Germany (50%) and Poland (41%) were the UK’s closest rivals.

“The power of retailers to shape the range of products which are nutrition labelled is clearly demonstrated in the UK,” the report stated.
