You know the routine. You’re sitting at your desk trying to catch up on paperwork when you receive the notice: “Important Meeting in 30 Minutes in the Conference Room. Topic – Last Month’s Butterfat Losses.”
Although it initially felt like the date may never come, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) compliance date for the menu labeling regulation went into effect on May 7, 2018. Hooray! Restaurants and food service establishments are now required to add calorie counts to their menus and menu boards. Nutrition information can be found both on the restaurant’s website and within the establishment to provide customers with more transparency on the nutrition information for the menu items they love to eat.
