Food labelling and regulations - important changes announced by FDA

For several years, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has worked to modernize the nutritional values labelling ​​in the United States. This is the biggest change since the addition of nutritional values table ​​on the packaging. Throughout this process, the US government submitted several proposals to the population and manufacturing industries in order to have their comments on these changes. On May 20, the FDA released the official update of the new regulation, which entered into force 60 days after the announcement. Therefore, time has come to deal with these major changes. Companies with a turnover of more than $ 10 million yearly will have two years to comply (26 July 2018), while one extra year is granted to smaller companies (26 July 2019).
