Temporary Covid-19 Food Labeling Requirements and Updates

During this Covid-19 pandemic, the FDA is doing everything they can to prevent the spread of the virus, as well as reduce the strain on food manufactures by allowing certain covid-19 food labeling requirement flexibility. While these updates to food labeling requirements are temporary, it is vitally important that food manufacturers and distributors understand and are aware of the changes. The purpose of these covid-19 food labeling requirements is to allow certain flexibilities during these tumultuous times in order to create less strain and impact on the food supply chain. By allowing certain labeling flexibility, food production will experience less disruption, allowing suppliers to be able to keep up with the demand of the current market, and preventing consumer food product shortages. These updated policies will primarily be used to temporarily allow food production companies to use existing labels with no need to make updates for small formula changes due to limited product supply.
