FDA Food Label Compliance Solutions

The FDA governs the safety of ingredients added to food and regulates how the food is processed, packaged, and labeled. Food labeling is mandatory for different types of food, such as bread, canned items, cereals, frozen foods, snacks, drinks, and desserts. Nutrition labeling for fish and raw produce (vegetables and fruits) is voluntary.
