EU Clearing house

  • Objectives:

To establish a Clearing House on food reformulation and labelling in order to provide and gather about these issues all the relevant information and to enhance the networking among existing centres of expertise and databases.

  • Period of implementation: M 10 – M 36

  • WP Description:

The European Clearing House for Agri-food SMEs and Consumers will be a tool to support the EU in the fight against non-communicable diseases. It will serve and link all stakeholders and focus on topics related to food reformulation and consumers awareness. It will lead users to relevant information, enhance the networking among existing centres of expertise, web sites, databases and gather relevant information about the project issues.

The Clearing House will host a specialized Forum that will be fundamental to review and discuss: initiatives, policies and programmes aiming at reformulating food; the current state of knowledge regarding the link between elevated consumption of energy-dense, nutrient-poor foods that are high in fat, sugar and salt and health; the effectiveness and costs benefit analysis of interventions on fat, sugar and salt, and how to evaluate and monitor industry attitudes (follow-up). Forum participants will include academics, technical staff from Ministries of health and representatives from food manufacturers, the catering industry, professional associations and NGOs.

The contents will be uploaded in the clearinghouse according to the following criteria:

-Dated in the last 5 years;

-Scientifically validated by publication in medical or social sciences peer reviewed journals;

-Target group;

-Geographic area.


The navigation structure:

-The main structure will be decided in close consultation with test group: topics, target groups and regions.

-Specific sub-structure will be decided by SALUX steering committee.

-The navigation will be flexible.

-The sub-navigation will be connected to the topics, region and target groups that the user selects when upload the material.

-A good working search engine.

-All project Languages. Type of information that will be covered by the clearinghouse documents, reports, presentations, links, posters, images, brochures and leaflets.

-A promotion strategy will be crucial as users are responsible for filling the clearinghouse themselves.
