Important to remember

Food marketing is high krav on credibility and it is always the advertiser who is ultimately responsible for the claim being proven in the individual case. Therefore, avoid exaggerations and general statements and refer to sources. Also keep in mind that valid statements used in a particular context can be considered misleading in another case, for example depending on the image displayed or the product in question. Decisive is what the target group gets for an impression in an overall assessment in the individual case.
