Food Dive: The future is now: Thousands of products already sport the revamped Nutrition Facts label

Posted by Press on Oct 16, 2017 9:34:00 AM

When the Food and Drug Administration proposed a 2020 compliance date for the new Nutrition Facts label last month, some manufacturers breathed a sigh of relief, knowing they had extra time to get their products ready.

The deadline shift, however, made no difference to several manufacturers who have already started updating their nutritional labels. As of last week, there are now 7,265 products in grocery stores that sport the new label format, according to Label Insight.

Dagan Xavier, Label Insight's co-founder and vice president for data, told Food Dive that despite the delayed compliance deadline — the new labels were initially set to appear on most packages from major manufacturers by July 2018 — consumers will be seeing more of them as they shop. Since February 2016, when most of the rules governing the new label were published, Label Insight has seen a 300% growth in products sporting the new format each quarter.
