province. The circles of Fratelli d’Italia of Albenga, Alassio and Varazze took to the streets against the proposal to establish the Nutri-score on food packages sold by large retailers. An initiative carried out by France, Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands and Spain that is defined by the party as “scandalous”.
“Translated into simple words – they explain – it is a food product labeling system developed in France and designed to simplify the identification of the nutritional values of a food product. It is divided into 5 shades from green to red, and an alphabetical one comprising the five letters from A to E, where the color ‘red’ and the letter ‘E’ represent a food that would seem harmful to our health “.
“Our healthy and recognized Mediterranean diet is not the first time it has come under attack – they underline – as in this case of a French agency, which penalizes our quality agri-food with the complicity of large-scale distribution multinationals. According to them, our olive oil, parmesan cheese, ham, pecorino sardo belong to the category of unhealthy foods marked with the color ‘red’ and the letter ‘E’ “,
“Being Ligurian – comments the diving commissioner Daniele De Felice – thinking about the Nutri-Score, I wondered why pesto is considered unhealthy. The Nutri-Score is madness and Fratelli d’Italia will work to block this discriminatory labeling system which has no scientific basis and which is penalizing for our quality agri-food. I thank my collaborators and all the numerous people who with their signature help us to support our battles “.
“We are now in the square weekly – adds Roberto Crosetto, president of the Albenga club – among the people and with the people, to listen to the citizens and to carry on our battles and our proposals. We are committed to both local and national issues proposed by the party and brought to the headlines by our leader Giorgia Meloni, we are here and we will be there “.
