Italy complains about “traffic light” food labelling

first_imgItaly has complained over the UK’s use of voluntary colour-coded food labels, claiming the system is discriminatory.The European Commission’s Competitiveness Council said last week that the launch of a voluntary “traffic light” nutrition labelling system in the UK had “triggered vivid reactions” from EU economic operators.It added Italy had “requested discussion” of this point concerning the “alleged discriminatory and negative effect” of the system.Additionally, on 18 February 2014, the European Association of Craft, Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (UEAPME), wrote to representatives ahead of the Commission meeting in Brussels. It claimed the labels “seriously hinder the free movement of food products within the European internal market”, adding food exports from EU countries towards the UK could decrease by up to 12%.Citing a market survey by The Co-operative, it said “some 40% of women and almost a third (30%) of men” say “red” traffic lights have stopped them purchasing a product because it contained too much fat, salt or sugar.Introduced last June, the UK’s traffic light system uses red, amber and green front-of-pack colour coding to show consumers salt, sugar, fat and calorie levels, alongside EU-mandated Reference Intakes.According to the Department of Health (DOH), the new recommendation was based on “over 11 years of research” to identify a label that consumers can use at a glance to identify healthier choices.last_img read more

Stanley Cup Final 2019: Three takeaways from Blues’ Game 7 win

first_imgThe Blues are the Stanley Cup champions.St. Louis took down the Bruins 4-1 in Game 7 on Wednesday to earn the first Stanley Cup title in franchise history. What happened to Pastrnak?When the season started there might not have been a more talked about young player in the NHL than David Pastrnak. The 23-year-old lit up the net at the beginning of the year and couldn’t be stopped from putting points up.But in these playoffs he had some serious struggles, as did all of the Bruins’ top line. That line was possibly the best in the NHL all season long, but it went through big stretches in the NHL playoffs where it didn’t do what it needed to, especially in five-on-five situations.In Game 7, Pastrnak drove home the point of his disappointing run by whiffing on three separate shots in the first period. Maybe Binnington would have stopped them, maybe he wouldn’t have. But it’s a lot harder to stop 15 shots in a period than it is to stop 12 and Pastrnak came up empty when his team needed him to make a statement. It wasn’t a great showing from the youngster.David Pastrnak Whiffs on the Puck Count: 3— Stephen Whyno (@SWhyno) June 13, 2019 Stanley Cup Final 2019: Blues GM exchanges words with Bruins’ ice crew A late shot from Matt Grzelcyk snuck in the corner to ruin the shutout but at that point it was too late. The Blues were the champs.Here are three takeaways from Game 7The easiest takeaway ever writtenIf there is no Binnington, the Blues trade Ryan O’Reilly. If there’s no Binnington, St. Louis has a top-10 pick in the NHL Draft. If there is no Binny, the Missouri team may have finished where it sat in January — in dead last. But unfortunately for the Bruins, there is Binnington and now the Stanley Cup is bound for St. Louis.The rookie goalie was absolutely phenomenal in Game 7. He stood on his head in the first period stopping all 12 shots he faced, including several which made virtually no sense.Yeah, @binnnasty came to play in #Game7 . #StanleyCup🇺🇸📺: https://t.co/x1v5IP9RaP @nbc🇨🇦📺: https://t.co/Ru1tdgCszT @Sportsnet pic.twitter.com/jNWUfR16xw— NHL (@NHL) June 13, 2019And he did all of this while his teammates were neither getting shots on goal nor giving him any help as they had several bad turnovers in the first period, as well. But that didn’t matter because he’s made of nails. Binnington held his ground long enough to give his teammates a chance and they thanked him with two late goals in the period.Those goals helped Binnington become the first-ever rookie goalie to win 16 playoff games in a single season. Binnington might be the best thing to ever happen to the Blues.A problem re-emergesBinnington also forced the Bruins into some old bad habits in Game 7. Because of the amazing stops he continually made in the first period, Boston looked like it was getting skittish.As a result, it started doing the one thing a team can’t do against an incredibly physical team like St. Louis — it started over passing again. Multiple times in the second period, Boston had chances to shoot but it didn’t take them. In one moment in particular, Brad Marchand had an open lane to the net and just didn’t pull the trigger.To steal an old saying: “You can’t win unless you score.” The Bruins didn’t score in those first two periods, and a big reason they didn’t score in the second was because they often wouldn’t shoot. And, while this was a dominating score well out of reach of the Bruins, this game was all about Jordan Binnington.The rookie goalie saw 32 shots and stopped 33 of them.
