The purpose of this Special Issue, “Front-of-Pack Nutrition Label and Public Health”, is to provide an update of the scientific data pertaining to various front-of-pack nutrition-labels implemented (or currently adopted or currently under discussion) in different countries of the world, through studies conducted on both the nutrient profiling system underlying FOP nutrition labels, and on the graphical design of the labels. This Special Issue will also discuss FOP nutrition labels as a public health tool, the potential impacts of FOP nutrition labels and/or nutrient profiling systems on food purchases, dietary intakes and health status of populations (observational epidemiological studies, modelling studies, etc.), and food composition (reformulation and innovation). Finally, the potential role of stakeholders (namely lobbies or consumer associations), and the political process leading to the selection or rejection of FOP nutrition labels within the framework of nutrition policies will also be discussed
