FDA Regulations for food and beverage manufacturers - Esko

Are you ready for the new US and Canadian Nutritional Facts Tables regulations?

The iconic Nutritional Facts Table, seen on all food and beverage products sold in the US and in Canada, are changing – and all companies must comply by updating every piece of packaging that contains a nutrition facts table. Compliance dates are in flux but what is not in doubt is that these changes will need to happen.

Tackling this enormous challenge

This is an enormous challenge for food and beverage manufacturers and the overall packaging supply chain, and Esko is here to help.

While this is a challenge, it is also an opportunity to take a long hard look at your packaging process. While this is just the most recent regulatory change, there are more regulations coming, specifically GMO labeling with instructions due from the United States Department of Agriculture in the next 2 years.

How Esko helps

Esko is working in a number of ways to support food and beverage manufacturers and the rest of the packaging supply chain with compliant software, processes and standards:

  1. New software to easily create updated nutritional templates and the capability to instantly merge your new nutritional data into your packaging artwork, right in your design software of choice.
  2. Nutritional content review workflows that automatically route new nutritional information and tables for transparent and speedy approvals.
  3. Subject Matter Experts, that can conduct audits of your operation, and advise on the best way to tackle this, and future regulatory changes.
  4. Esko is working with manufacturers and the GS1 organization to ensure that existing standards take into account these changes and can be used to exchange nutritional data between systems.

We at Esko are well prepared to support food and beverage manufacturers having just assisted European Union companies in complying with new nutritional labeling in the past few years with (EU) No 1169/2011.

To help, we will be announcing webinars and providing informational materials to assist with this process. If you would like to be notified when these are available, please contact a specialist.
