SENS System

The Simplified Nutritional Labelling System-SENS is another way to provide customers with information regarding the recommended consumption frequency of products based on their nutritional value. It helps consumers to choose the appropriate products for maintaining an healthy and balanced diet. The name SENS comes from the French language- Système d’Étiquetage Nutritionnel Simplifié.

SENS

The clear and understandable SENS pictogram, located on the front of product packages, helps consumers to better understand nutritional information that are most often given in a nutrition facts table.

The symbol SENS can be found on Carrefour own-label products as well as on products from the “Jakość z Natury” assortment .

SENS – key information

SENS divides food products into four categories.

Each product is marked with a symbol composed of colorful triangles. The color and the size of the triangle refer to the nutritional composition of a given product and its recommended consumption frequency.

The more the triangle is filled with color, the more often and in bigger quantities you can consume a given product.
