Following an announcement earlier this year that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is introducing a modernized Nutrition Facts label for packaged foods, Esko has revealed a new solution to help manufacturers to adhere to the new regulations.
“The new regulations require food and beverage manufacturers to update all of their packaging artwork for product sold in the US, which is a complex challenge due to the sheer volume of work and the need to ensure the layout of the label is exactly as described by the FDA,” said Philippe Adam, VP of Global Marketing at Esko. “Our unique solution allows manufacturers to establish a methodology and clear process for dealing with this challenge in a very simple way, as well as preparing manufacturers with an established workflow for future regulatory compliance of their packaging.”
Esko’s solution employs its latest technology to establish a reliable workflow and simple approval and quality control capabilities, as well as nutritional facts table templates for easy placement into packaging artwork, which will enable rapid development of compliant packaging.
Changes to the new nutrition facts label include an update to many serving sizes to bring them more in line with current consumer habits.
