"Mr President, Commissioner, ladies and gentlemen, I wish to congratulate both rapporteurs. During the first reading of the report on nutrition and health claims made on foods, we – as the European Parliament – approved a large number of amendments designed to facilitate the application of the present regulation for the benefit of consumers. The majority voted against regulation of the nutritional ingredients in food and rejected Article 4, thereby considerably weakening the regulation in question. This regulation should, above all, aim to make consumers more aware of the importance of a healthy, balanced and harmonious diet. This is the reason why we should all agree with the Council's common position, which is why I continue to support it as a starting position. However, given the difficulty in achieving a compromise and the need for European consumers for there to be such a regulation, I call for us all to at least support the package of compromise amendments. In this way, we shall be able to secure proper information for European consumers."@en1
