The European Parliament today ratified the comprehensive economic and trade agreement between the EU and Canada, known as CETA, with a solid majority of 408 against 254. Amidst protests from the anti-trade left- and rightwing factions, a solid majority endorsed this new generation trade agreement that will now in major parts enter into force provisionally. This represents a crucial step in the cumbersome ratification process involving no less than 38 elected assemblies in the 28 EU Member States – yes, that includes the UK for as long as it is a full EU member.
In recent years, New York vlogger (short for video blogger) Casey Neistat has emerged as a global YouTube celebrity. His highly creative and risk-taking videos have generated a very respectable follower base of 6.5 million subscribers. In 2016, his account was one of YouTube’s fastest growing. Neistat makes a living through his daily videos and paid partnerships with some of the world’s richest brands such as Nike, Samsung or Mercedes. So, how did the Blue Point Brewery*, a small Long Island (NY) company with less than 40 employees, managed to get him on board as well? And – most importantly – what can organisations learn from this?

Earlier this year five Nordic countries (Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Iceland) sent a letter requesting that the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) set a dietary reference value for sugars and, in particular, added sugars. In 2010 EFSA published an opinion on setting reference values on the total carbohydrates and fiber but did not set a reference value for added sugars, although it was noted that excessive consumption of sugars contributes to weight gain. In their request, the Nordic countries asked whether EFSA’s 2010 opinion can be revised in light of new scientific evidence confirming the efficacy of limiting added sugars intake.
While the EU remains divided on the added value of nutrient profiling, the WHO has already started promoting it as a useful tool to restrict the marketing of unhealthy foods to children. In 2015 it adopted a nutrient profile model covering 17 food categories and setting thresholds for total fat, saturated fat, total sugars, added sugars and salt. Any product exceeding one of these thresholds should not be permitted for marketing to children. The WHO model faced fierce criticism from the food industry, yet some governments have already admitted they may incorporate it into national legislation (Switzerland, Slovenia).
