Based on this a Nordic Seminar, supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers and the Nordic Committee of Senior Officials for Food Issues, was arranged in November 2006. The aim of the seminar was to provide a platform for discussion about food labelling issues important to the Nordic countries and stakeholders regarding the issues highlighted in the Consultative Document. Comments from Nordic stakeholders and policymakers who participated at the workshop are presented in this report. Additionally, comments have been included from Nordic consumer studies.
