A NATCOL position paper is a document, or collection of documents, that presents an opinion about an issue. Position papers range from the simplest format of a letter to the editor through to the most complex in the form of an academic position paper. The NATCOL position papers are made public to document the problem and what we believe to be a solution. Topics will be varied but focused entirely on Food Colours or Food Colouring only.
