Following recent evolutions of the EU legal framework, the Directorate General for Health and Consumers of the European Commission, required the organisation of a specific training programme on legal requirements regarding Food Information (incl. food labelling, nutritional labelling, health claims…) and Food Composition (incl. nutritional requierements, food added with vitamins …), and its practical implementation by National Competent Authorities in EU Member States. 30 four-day training courses had to be organised over a four-year period (2013-2016) in 6 locations (Madrid, Valencia, Venice, Dublin, Prague and Riga). The consortium gathered a multi-disciplinary team of 12 tutors representing 6 EU nationalities to develop ad-hoc training material and participate as tutors in the session. The mix of pedagogical methodologies used in the project included: - Lectures; - Practical exercises; - Serious gaming; - Case studies. The training programme includes 4 distinct modules (1 day each): - Food Information - Nutritional and Health Claims; - Fortified Food / Food Supplements; - Food for Specific Groups (formerly known as PARNUTS). A total of 1230 participants from Member States, Candidates, EFTA and Third Countries were trained.
