An Update on What's Coming
in Nutrition Labeling

Revising the Nutrition Facts panel remains a high priority for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).  In the coming months, FDA is expected to publish an extensive proposed rule that would change the Nutrition Facts label and related rules including: 

  • Propose new Daily Values
  • Require additional nutrient declarations
  • Make some currently required declarations voluntary
  • Make adjustments to nutrition label formats
  • Regulate some nutrition-related claims

GMA experts have formulated the Get Smarter: An Update on What’s Coming in Nutrition Labeling webinar to outline the anticipated scope of this rulemaking and consider recent government activities in nutrition and food labeling, in order to prepare food companies for the coming changes that are likely to affect all food labels.

Companies that participated in the 2011 webinar will receive some new information, as well as reminders about anticipated elements of the rulemaking.  And if this issue is not on your company’s radar, now is the perfect time to become familiar with the forthcoming changes to food labels.
