Obamacare menu labeling requirements start May 5

Obamacare menu labeling requirements start May 5

Food Safety News quotes CEO Rick Chavie about the importance of implementing a food content network to meet new FDA regulations and prevent fines levied as a result of the Affordable Care Act.
“Regional and national chain restaurants will be in a catch-up mode to produce compliant, lab-validated content that matches the ingredients of localized menu items for owned and franchised locations,” said EnterWorks CEO Rick Chavie. “Unlike branded packaged food products which can be controlled at the factory, ingredients included in prepared food recipes may be varied to meet regionalized tastes. A central food content network that incorporates local preferences can offer the menu authenticity that restaurants need while meeting FDA rules Restaurants are quickly adopting omnichannel strategies including tablet side tablets, kiosks for ordering and digital signage for menus. Keeping physical and digital information accurate and timely as new items are added to menus is a perfect use case for an omnichannel product content platform. For restaurant franchisors lacking such a product information management system, delivery of timely, accurate and FDA‐compliant menus and labeling will be an ongoing problem.”
