Research and Markets has announced the addition of the “FDA NLEA Regulation for Retail and Foodservice Labeling – An overview of current regulation and pending regulations” webinar to their offering.

The laws that regulate food labeling, especially under the NLEA, have been updated in recent years since the original regulations were written. There are also many pending changes that will affect regulation requirements. It is important to keep up with the changes to ensure compliance. The number one cause of food product recalls is improper labeling. These recalls are expensive for food manufacturers in actual cost with brand loyalty and loss of potential sales being the larger and sometimes unrealized cost. Understanding food labeling requirements is the first step in prevention of labeling issues.

Nutrition Labeling is one of the most recent pending updates to the CFR. Customers rely more and more on retail labeling to manage diet due to diabetes, obesity and other health conditions. Accurate labeling is required for all individuals. The FDA is sensitive to this need and may audit products at any time to ensure compliance. The Nutritional Labeling and Education Act of 1990 AKA NLEA defines what should appear on packaged retail products.
