FMI Webinar: FDA Overview of Menu Labeling Draft Guidance

Wednesday, October 14, 2015 (2pm - 3pm US/Eastern)

On December 1, 2014 the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published its final rule implementing “Nutrition Labeling of Standard Menu Items at Chain Restaurants.” The rule regulates supermarkets as well as supercenters, general merchandise, convenience stores and other non-restaurant establishments under the menu labeling regulations and provides additional guidance on the scope of foods covered, what is considered a “standard menu item” and how calorie information may be displayed for foods that are covered under the rule. In July 2015, FDA extended the compliance date an additional year until December 1, 2016. In September 2015, FDA released draft guidance for industry implementation of the menu labeling requirements for restaurants and similar retail food establishments.

On October 14, FMI will be hosting a webinar with FDA officials during which agency officials will provide an overview of the draft guidance.
