What is the footprint of your shopping trolley?

You can make a big difference to the environment with your every-day food choices. But what should you choose? The food products which take the shortest route before they reach your plate, obviously! And, additionally, with the least impact on the environment. And which comply with one of the many sustainability claims, labels and initiatives. And... Sounds complicated? Understandable. With the Eco-score, we make it easier for you.

The Eco-score makes eco-friendly choices easier

Just like the Nutri-Score the Eco-score is a guide to help you make informed choices. For the environment in this case. It is one score that summarises many environmental aspects on which a product has an impact: from COemissions to water consumption, soil acidification and more.

You can find the Eco-score of many of our private label products through the Xtra-app. You can find the Eco-score of many of our private label products through the Xtra-app.
Thanks to the labels (A, B, C, D or E), you can get information about a product's environmental impact at a glance. And it allows you to compare different products. This way, making eco-conscious choices become child's play. Thanks to the labels (A, B, C, D or E), you can get information about a product's environmental impact at a glance.

Choosing for the environment

The Eco-score encourages you to go all out for more sustainable food:

  • more vegetable food, less and better quality meat;
  • products with organic or other quality labels;
  • local food;
  • products without or with more eco-friendly packaging;
  • food with less impact on our biodiversity. E.g.: without endangered fish species or non-sustainable palm oil.
