The European Food Information Council (EUFIC) is a non-profit organisation that communicates science-based information on nutrition and health, food safety and quality, to help the public to be better informed when choosing a well-balanced, safe and healthful diet.
EUFIC has been involved in over 20 EU-funded research projects since 2004, as dissemination and research partner, mainly desk or consumer research, and has acted as a coordinator in two projects, FLABEL and CLYMBOL.
EUFIC’s expertise, tools and networks enable a massive outreach to a wider audience of relevant stakeholders, such as consumer organisations, consumer scientists, food and drink industries (including SMEs), food scientist associations, health professionals, media policy makers, retail and catering sectors, public and society at a European level. As an indication of outreach, EUFIC’s website had over 10 million visitor sessions in 2014, and EUFIC’s newsletter FOOD TODAY, which exists in 12 languages, is distributed to more than 47,000 health professionals, educators, media, scientists, and other communication multipliers. EUFIC has more than 14,000 followers in its social media accounts, which include Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and YouTube.
