Cоnsumers want to be completely informed about the products which they buy on the market since they can choose between several varieties. National economies, especially the developed ones, have passed the regulation on compulsory information which must be found on the product package. One important segment of this product labelling is nutrition labelling which provides consumers with nutritious information about the product. In the USA the nutrition labelling was mandatory while in the EU nutrition labelling was optional. The regulation on nutrition labelling in the EU dates back to 1990 and since then had been amended several times. But due to the customer needs to be better informed about nutritious impact of products, the EU had adopted the proposal of regulation which will make nutrition labelling mandatory. This article will explore all the amendments of the nutrition labelling directive and explain the newly proposed regulation in this area.

Keywords: EU food labelling, nutrition labelling, mandatory nutrition declaration
