Menu Labeling Legislation - How and When Does it Affect You?

The final compliance date for menu labeling regulations has been set.  The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced that as of May 5, 2017, restaurants and similar retail food establishments with 20 or more U.S. locations must provide calories on menus and menu boards and nutrition information for 10 additional nutrients at the point of sale.  This enforcement deadline along with the release of the final guidance on menu labeling, “A Labeling Guide for Restaurants and Retail Establishments Selling Away-From-Home Foods – Part II (Menu Labeling Requirements in Accordance with 21 CFR 101.11),” officially start the countdown clock for restaurants.

If you are one of the approximately 250,000 covered establishments or expect to be in coming years, you may have plenty of questions about compliance.  Learn more in the resources below or contact our team for guidance on menu labeling compliance, nutrition analysis and more.
