Danone and McCain joined the four companies that have signed a charter committing to use Nutri-Score (the other companies are Fleury Michon, Auchan, Leclerc, and Intermarché).

This makes a total of six companies – three manufacturers and three distributors who also manufacture private label brands – that will display this optional nutritional label. The implementation will take place gradually throughout 2018. The colour code can already be seen on some packaging in stores. The first priority is the drive-through services of the participating retailers.

As a reminder, the decree establishing this optional addition to the nutritional information that is officially recommended was signed on Tuesday, 31st October, then published in the Official Journal of the French Republic on Friday, 3rd November. An attachment describes the graphic representation and sets the specifications.
