Welcome

Nutrition and Health Claims

Implementation of the new EU legislation on nutrition and health claims is a huge task. To facilitate the understanding of claim requirements and the extent human studies required, we have invited a group of top specialists to an international congress to be held in Naantali, Finland, in November. Keynote speakers from EFSA, British Nutrition Foundation and European Parliament as well as Universities and enterprises will discuss hot topics and address questions such as “how to determine nutrient profiles” and “how to make an application for a claim in practice”. In addition, a view into Japanese and Chinese legislations on nutrition and health products will be provided. Join us and receive the latest news and real life experiences!

The congress belongs to the series of Functional Food Network (FFNET) meetings and it is organised in cooperation with the Finnish Centre of Expertise Programme in Food Development.

We wish you welcome to Nutrition and Health Claims Congress in Naantali on November 7-9, 2007.
