Companies, Consumers Parsing GMO Food Labeling Laws
The battle over GMO disclosure may not be over, of course, as those in favor of both less and more information are still out there. The author noted that the legal struggle and series of challenges has spanned more than two decades. Now that the national version of a labeling standard is in place, you can relax somewhat, especially regarding possible patchwork rules that affect states where you do business. As for whether the rules established will change, it's impossible to say for sure, and it pays to keep monitoring the rules and stay compliant.
Time for a Food Product Label Shake-up
GMO disclosure isn't the only rule relating to food labeling practices set to change over the next few years, but it's as good a reason as any to step back and observe your food product labeling strategy. High-quality, custom food labels in compliance with all current laws could transform your offerings in multiple ways, keeping your brand ahead of the curve from a legal perspective and giving you a chance to either add a new visual identity or sharpen your products' classic look. Changes in labeling law can be an opportunity for reinvention your products with customized food labels rather than an imposition.
