Learn More About New Menu-Labeling Rules

Last year, the FDA released new regulations implementing menu-labeling requirements at restaurants and "similar retail food establishments,” including many convenience stores. As a general matter, establishments that are covered by the new regulations must post calories for standard menu items on menus or menu boards or, for self-service items and foods on display, on signs adjacent to the items. NACS has prepared a brief summary and compliance guide of the final menu-labeling regulations. While NACS hopes to work with federal officials to obtain guidance and clarification on certain aspects of the rule, retailers should begin developing an understanding of the rule's requirements and thinking about compliance strategies, prior to the December 1, 2015, implementation deadline.
