Now that the FDA’s final regulations on menu labeling have been released, it’s time to start planning to make sure your restaurant meets the requirements.
The menu-labeling regulations, which are part of the 2010 health care law, will require restaurants with 20 or more locations operating under the same name to include calorie counts on menus, menu boards and drive-thru displays and provide other nutrition information to customers on request. The regulations are voluntary for smaller restaurants.
Legal and restaurant industry experts will walk you through the steps you need to take to comply with the regulations during the National Restaurant Association’s members-only webinar, “How will the new federal menu-labeling rules affect your restaurant?” The webinar will be held Dec. 9 at 3 p.m. EST. Scheduled speakers include:
- Steven Steinborn, a partner at the law firm Hogan Lovells and a national expert in food and drug law.
- Joan McGlockton, an attorney and the National Restaurant Association’s vice president, industry affairs and food policy.
- Dan Roehl, National Restaurant Association vice president of government affairs.
The NRA has launched Restaurant.org/MenuLabeling as a go-to resource for the latest news and information on the regulations.
