The Influence of Front-Of-Pack Nutrition Labels on Consumers’ Food Choices At the Point of Purchase and the Point of Consumption

This article assesses whether front-of-pack nutrition labeling is effective in stimulating healthy food choices. A projective photo-elicitation study and a laboratory experiment were conducted. The results show that labels – if noticed – influence choices at the point of purchase but are disregarded when consumers prepare and eat their family meal at home.
