Did You Move FDA Menu Labeling to the Back Burner?

Did You Move FDA Menu Labeling To The Back Burner?

Was that you we heard breathe a sigh of relief when the FDA ruling was postponed? As you know, Congress pushed for – and got – “appropriate time to budget and plan accordingly to meet the rule’s requirements to provide nutrition information to consumers that is understandable and clear, and therefore of the greatest value to consumers.”

Of course, that means YOU got extra time to plan, too. But with 2016 budgets fast approaching, now is the time to make sure you include those menu labeling requirements.

It’s a lot of information that needs to make its way into your store environment soon. And we know you’re wondering how it’s all going to fit. GSP Design Services has started to compile some innovative solutions for your stores. We thought we’d share a sneak peek of the ideas we’re working on to help you.
