2017 Regulatory Update

 

We are very excited to have Amy Tatelbaum, Manager of Scientific and Regulatory Affairs from the National Confectioners Association  in Washington, as our next speaker.

National Confectioners Association

With a new administration in place, what will food and nutrition policy look like? Labeling of genetically engineered foods will continue to be a focus of federal legislation while state developments such as Prop 65, taxes and slack fill will become more prevalent. The nutrition facts label final rules have been released by FDA and include new requirements to disclose added sugars and maintain records. All of the major final rules for FSMA have also been released and manufactures are now moving into the implementation phase.
