Food Industry’s Frequent Food Label Changes Over Time
FDA has set a compliance date of July 26, 2018, for the updated Nutrition Facts label for major companies. However, food industry trade groups have launched a fierce campaign to delay it until May 2021. According to the FDA, 95% of companies have until July 26, 2019, to begin using the updated Nutrition Facts label, and the Agency estimates $78 billion in consumer benefits over 20 years from the new label. This infographic shows how companies routinely change labeling for the marketing of their products during holiday seasons and in conjunction with blockbuster movie rollouts.
