French Roquefort Cheese Producers Fight Low Nutrition Rating

Roquefort cheese has been given a Nutri-score rating of E, prompting producers to call for a re-evaluation of the food rating system. 

The Nutri-score system, introduced in France in 2017, gives food packaging a label that is meant to quickly and simply show consumers how healthy and nutritious the food is. 

The labels use a colour and alphabet-graded scale that runs from A, or green, for the healthiest foods, to E, or red, for the least healthy foods.
