Whether it’s to help with the good functioning of your body or used as a carrier for essential nutrients, salt is essential to a healthy life.
However, due to a lack of regulatory framework and harmonisation, European public health policies have failed to address issues linked to malnutrition, particularly lack of micronutrients and the ensuing health impacts.
Salt as a carrier for nutrients isn’t a random choice.
Salt has been globally recognised as a cost-effective vehicle for nutrients, due to its widespread consumption and due to the low cost of fortification. Indeed, salt as a carrier guarantees folic acid and/or iodine and/or fluoride intakes for a whole population, without discriminating certain social classes and independent of any dietary preference. Salt can also be used in specific processed foods resulting to an easy control of nutrient intakes, avoiding risks of over-exposure. Therefore, EUsalt supports the recommendations from the WHO 2008 Report for salt fortification and promotes the use of salt as carrier of essential nutrients.

The Industry4Europe coalition has issued on 17 October 2018 a Joint Call to the candidates for the 2019 European Elections.
The Joint Call sets out the Coalition's aim to make industry the priority for EU policy makers, including future Members of the European Parliament and the future mandate of the European Commission.
Industry matters for Europe and its citizens
New Joint Paper on “A Governance Structure for an ambitious EU Industrial Strategy” has been co-signed by 122 Members of the Industry4Europe coalition.
In the aftermath of the two previous Industry4Europe Joint Papers “For an ambitious EU Industrial Strategy: Going further” (October 2017) and “Setting indicators for an ambitious EU Industrial Strategy” (March 2018), this new Joint Paper aims at proposing a governance structure which enables the implementation of an ambitious EU Industrial Strategy, based on an informed dialogue between the industry, decision-makers at EU, national, regional and local levels and the Civil Society.
More specifically, a future Industrial Strategy governance structure should be based on the following two pillars:
1. Ensuring an informed and permanent dialogue between the industry and policy decision-makers in association with civil society stakeholders (trade unions, consumers organisations, NGOs, academia) and;
2. A structure of European Institutions which allows for an Industrial Strategy to be addressed and implemented at highest level.
