The webinar is on Tuesday, January 13, 2015 at 12:00 pm EST. To register, go to: http://www.tracegains.com/events
The FDA has finalized two rules requiring that calorie information be listed on menus and menu boards in chain restaurants and similar retail food establishments and vending machines.
The menu labeling final rule applies to restaurants and similar retail food establishments if they are part of a chain of 20 or more locations, doing business under the same name, offering for sale substantially the same menu items and offering for sale restaurant-type foods. The vending machine final rule requires operators who own or operate 20 or more vending machines to disclose calorie information for food sold from vending machines, subject to certain exemptions.
Beth Johnson, MS, RD, Founder and Principal of Food Directions LLC, a Washington, DC-based food policy consulting company will provide expert insight into these new requirements.
