Grab N Go Food Labels

In 1967, the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act required all “consumer commodities” to label contents and manufacturer information. The Fair Packaging and Labeling Act means all food manufacturers and brands must list ingredients, nutritional information, and place of creation and distribution. Subsequent regulations required the display of known allergens and total calories on the food labels. The regulations also include restaurants with grab-and-go food items.

MenuCalc assists establishments with creating FDA-compliant food labels and nutritional facts for their grab-and-go items. The Food Label system allows restaurant owners to add or change nutritional information and ingredients or adjust the overall layout of a food label sticker through our portal.

With MenuCalc, you can create more innovative and faster food labels, providing consumers with all the necessary information. In addition, with our ingredient and nutritional insights platform, you can build healthy displays and allergen reports in one place. 

MenuCalc helps restaurants make FDA-compliant food label stickers consumers today have come to expect at the level of nutritional restaurants. We understand the struggle and strive to lighten your load.

Does Your Product Require a Food Label?

There are some exemptions to the FDA’s label laws. However, it might be prudent to include labels anyway. It’s essential to consider consumer awareness when deciding what information to provide on your products. Regulation requirements were created to help battle the increasing rate of obesity in America. Consumers appreciated having the facts on the food label so much that they began to request information from every establishment.
