Public consultation on Grocery stores

Nordic Ecolabelling is revising the criteria for Grocery stores. We invite you to comment on our proposal no later than April 2nd, 2023.

Nordic Ecolabelling is now revising the criteria for Grocery stores. You are welcome to comment on the proposal before April 2nd.

We are asking for input on the proposal as a whole and specifically for the following points

  • Proposed limit values for the proportion of organic, see requirement no O1 and P1.
  • Proposed limit values for the proportion of ecolabelled, see requirement no O2 and P2. We welcome comments on proposed limit values, but also any suggestions for limit values based on your own calculations on the proportion of sales of organic and ecolabelled products.
  • Locally produced goods, see requirement no P3. How likely is it to get points here?
  • Deforestation-free meat, see requirement no P4. A new regulation from the EU regarding deforestation means that we are proposing requirements around this. As a first step at a point level, we gratefully accept opinions on this.
  • Climate action, see requirement no O10. What does the opportunity look like for the store to get the mandatory 4 points?
