How can we build a European Ecolabelling for food products ?
The ECO FOOD CHOICE project aims to provide an answer to this question over the next four years.

This is the repay of the presentation webinar of EcoFoodChoice which took place the 18th of April 2024 to present the objectives of our new Life project born of the shared ambition of researchers, policy makers and companies to develop and harmonize ecolabelling on a European scale.

The coordinating team : Gregoire Richard (Ademe), Vincent COLOMB (Ademe), Koen Boone (Wageningen University and Research), Ralph K. Rosenbaum from (IRTA) and Dr. Birgit Schulze-Ehlers (University of Goettingen) explain you how the project plan to achieve this ambitious goal with 3 main work packages :

DATA : We aim to develop a harmonized methodology for life-cycle inventories of food products in Europe, with the aim of creating robust environmental databases for food products.

METHOD : Building on French work, the aim is to develop a standardized method for aggregating life cycle inventory scores and translating them into an environmental score that takes into account all the environmental impacts of food products.

TEST : We plan to test an ecolabelling system in real-life conditions, involving experiments in supermarkets, canteens and online platforms in France, Germany, the Netherlands and Spain. These tests will help assess the impact of labelling on consumer purchasing behavior and on farmers' practices.
