What is the Nutri-Score?

The Nutri-Score is a nutritional label and indicates the nutritional quality of processed foods. It is determined on the basis of various nutrients and ingredients. Desirable and less desirable nutritional elements are offset against each other.

A scale from A to E shows the nutritional quality of a product. A "green A" is a nutritionally better choice than a "red E" for comparable products.

OUR approach

Our claim for sustainable success

Numerous studies have shown that consumers only buy products in the long term if they taste good. In addition, consumers are accustomed to a certain sensory profile in everyday products and largely expect a certain consistency.

Any measure aimed at improving the Nutri-Score must therefore also ensure "good taste" in order to satisfy consumers in the long term.

So-called disguising tactics through the use of substitutes are out of the question, as there are increasingly critical consumers in this respect.

Study: How important is the Nutri-Score?

Our key findings of the study are:

🛒 The Nutri-Score is (already) important to consumers.

🛒 A positive Nutri-Score leads not only to higher expectations of how healthy the product is, but also to the expectation that it tastes better and is more sustainable.

🛒 The Nutri-Score can influence purchase decisions, necessitating product improvements, especially if competitors already use the Nutri-Score for their products

What do these findings imply?

✅ While many still discuss if the Nutri-Score is useful or not, many customers already base their purchase decision on it. That is why firms should start thinking about implementing the Nutri-Score.

✅ If firms decide to use the Nutri-Score they should check if they could improve their product further in order to to improve the Nutri-Score which will have a positive effect on the market share especially when improving from D to C or C to B.
