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.
Information that EUFIC publishes has been subject to a review process by members of its Scientific Advisory Board (SAB). The SAB comprises a group of renowned experts from across Europe who advise EUFIC on its information and communication programmes, ensuring that all information is based on scientific evidence, relevance and is factually correct. EUFIC consults with other scientific experts for specific projects in areas such as consumer research and science communication. Given the broad range of subjects addressed in EUFIC’s popular newsletter, Food Today, a dedicated Editorial Board for this publication provides additional insights and feedback.
With its main offices located in Brussels (Belgium), EUFIC counts on and liaises with a European network to enhance the impact and outreach of its communication instruments and programmes in other countries.
EUFIC actively participates in European initiatives together with the European Commission Directorates General for Research & Innovation and for Health and Consumers, where it contributes to a number of projects as research and dissemination partner.
EUFIC is supported by companies of the European food and drinks industries, and receives project funding from the European Commission. It is governed by a Board of Directors which is elected from member companies. Current EUFIC members are: Abbott Nutrition, AB Sugar, Bunge, Cargill, Cereal Partners, Coca-Cola, Dow Seeds, DSM Nutritional Products Europe Ltd., Ferrero, General Mills, Mondelēz Europe, Mars, McDonald's, Nestlé, PepsiCo, Pinar Et, Südzucker, Tereos, Ülker, Unilever and Zoetis.
All members subscribe to EUFIC's transparency statement.
