Eufic transparency statement

  • The European Food Information Council (EUFIC) has been established to provide science-based information and education material on foods and food related topics to health and nutrition professionals, educators, opinion leaders and the news media, in a form understandable to the general public.
  • EUFIC's publications are based on peer reviewed science and will not promote views which cannot be endorsed by the scientific community at large. All publications must include references to scientific texts or experts.
  • EUFIC will strive to publish in partnership with organisations or recognised experts, acknowledged for their credibility in their field of activity.
  • EUFIC does not act as the spokesperson of industry and does not wish to be perceived as such.
  • All activities must support EUFIC's mission as a credible and scientifically sound information source.
  • EUFIC respects the specificity of each country and believes that most communication programmes can be established most effectively on a national level.
  • EUFIC will be mindful of the need to address a balanced mix of subjects that enhance EUFIC's impact, credibility and effectiveness.
  • EUFIC will not promote individual companies' views or brands nor any other information material, which is not based on peer reviewed science.
  • EUFIC participates in an informal global network of Food Information Councils that share the common goal of communicating science-based information on healthy lifestyle, nutrition and food safety.
The European Food Information Council (EUFIC) is a non-profit organisation which communicates science-based information on nutrition and health, food safety and quality, to help consumers to be better informed when choosing a well-balanced, safe and healthful diet.
