Originally, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had proposed a series of changes to the Nutrition Facts label that were set to go into effect for most companies by July 26, 2018. During the last U.S. Administration, an update put those changes on indefinite hold.
However, since the start of the new Administration, that temporary hold has been lifted, and the proposed changes are being put into effect. All the while, many companies have already incorporated these changes, understanding that the bulk of consumers want clearer guidelines for their food shopping. This updated white paper dissects the various aspects of the FDA plans, in order to help you simplify your food labeling projects.
UPDATE: Originally, manufacturers with $10 million or more in annual sales would have been expected to make a switch to the new label format by January 1, 2020; manufacturers with less than $10 million in annual food sales would have had until January 1, 2021 to comply. At this point, all manufacturers must now come into compliance with the revised FDA nutrition label requirements as soon as feasible.
