CAOBISCO engagements on nutrition and health

Information about the various options chosen by Caobisco members to guide consumers towards healthier diets and lifestyles.

CAOBISCO and its membres consider that, when used in moderation, in the framework of a balanced diet and an active lifestyle, chocolate, confectionery & biscuit products have a place in the diet.

CAOBISCO members recognise that their products are essentially about bringing pleasure and enjoyment to people.

The three sectors are committed to finding reasonable and workable ways to respond to changes in societal demands and are open to the opportunity to reduce nutrients of publich health concern. To this end, CAOBISCO members have at their disposal a menu of options that they can implement to guide consumers towards healthier diets and lifestyles:

  • Product composition: Innovation and product formulation
  • Mindful eating: Product design and portion sizes
  • Consumer information : Clear, fact-based nutrition information
  • Responsible advertising and marketing to children
  • Promotion of healthy lifestyles
