The New FDA Labeling Rules are Here

Posted on May 23, 2016 by

We've been waiting, and now it's official: The FDA has revamped nutrition labels. If you're wondering about the details of what's involved and when and how it affects you, here's the scoop.

The Timeline

Before you drop everything to update your labels, know that you do have quite a bit of time. Businesses have until July 26, 2018 to comply with the new FDA labeling rules. But manufacturers with less than $10 million in annual food sales get an extra year to comply (until July 26, 2019).

EDIT (August 10, 2016): We've set up the new formats and they're now available to everyone!
