What is foodwatch?

We are fighting for your right to safe, healthy foods and to information about the things you eat. We keep a close eye on industry and politics – and to remain independent, we do not accept funding from the government or the food industry. As a non-profit campaigning organization we are funded by ten thousands of people. We operate at the national and European levels, and have offices in GermanyFrance and the Netherlands.

Fruit yogurts with no fruit, miracle-health products with dangerous side effects: when it comes to packaged foods, misleading information is not the exception but the rule.

Although European food legislation provides explicitly for the protection of human health through the prevention of health hazards, fraud and deception, this policy has not been translated into legal practice.

The number of people who are overweight or obese has increased dramatically over recent decades. The main reason for this development: when it comes to food, the unhealthy choice is all too often the easy choice.
