Believe it or not, many of the packaged food products in the retail marketplace don’t conform to the FDA Food Labeling Guide requirements. It’s not surprising, seeing as the guide is lengthy, confusing and complex. The FDA can’t check every package to ensure compliance, however if an error is discovered, it does need to be fixed. The requirements are vast and detailed, down to specific type sizes, name of product, placement of information and much more.

With over a decade of experience in food packaging design, we reference the FDA Food Labeling Guide often and have condensed the basic requirements into this easy, simplified reference checklist. You can read it in full here.
