From the new Bioengineering law to Nutrition Label Reform and new Nutrition Innovation Strategy, companies must balance regulatory and marketplace demands in a shifting landscape.

Nutrition Label Reform Transition & Implementation Strategies for USDA Foods
Significant changes to Nutrition Facts Panels were announced in May 2016. These new regulations will impact your company's brand image, label design, label format and record keeping requirements. Companies are faced with decisions to simply re-label products or to re-package, reformulate or even remove them from shelves altogether.
For FDA regulated products, the compliance date is near (January 2020 for most companies and January 2021 for small businesses). And even USDA companies are transitioning now. It is important to get professional help, as in our experience working with company transitions thus far, we've seen unanticipated complexities and consequences.
After creating thousands of new nutrition panels since 2016, Prime Label has distilled its expertise into a seminar on trends and best practices in Nutrition Label Reform transitions.
