Why Should you Attend

In 2016, the Food and Drug Administration finalized changes to the new Nutrition Facts Label which is the first change to this label in more than 20 years. Under the new administration we are unsure what the status of this new regulation is, but we will discuss what we know about implementation. We also know that the USDA has issued a proposal for revised nutrition facts for meat and poultry products. We will briefly discuss that proposal and what it means for these product labels.


The new label reflects updates in scientific information and aims to help consumers make better and more informed choices. The biggest changes include increased font size for calorie information, declaration of added sugar in amount and percent daily value and updated requirements for serving size. The new label will have far-reaching implications for industry, including effects on ingredients and recipes, as well as nutrient content claims allowed. There are also changes to the way that serving sizes are calculated and the recommended amounts customarily consumed for some food categories.


If you sell, market or manufacture packaged food and beverages, your product label will likely change as a result of these rules. Label changes could be as minor as updating values on the NFP or as major as format, content and design changes. These new regulations not only transform the way nutrition information will appear on the label they also impact the claims that can be made for certain foods.
