The aim of this report is to show how Portuguese consumers use and understand nutrition information on food labels in their daily lives. It starts by presenting the theoretical framework for exploring the research goals. This is followed by a description of the methods, including the overall research approach, data collection techniques and data analysis procedures. Primary data were collected in a survey of 1127 Portuguese consumers and in four focus groups that explored differences among adults who were strongly conscious about healthy eating, adults who were weakly conscious about healthy eating, adults with less education and young people aged 15–18 years.
