WILLIAM BIGELOW – VP OF R+D AND BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT AT BLOUNT FINE FOODS
Changes and New Regulations of Food Labeling
The FDA made one the largest changes to its regulatory standards for the Nutritional Facts Panel in 2016 and William Bigelow took the stage to explain what needs to change by July 2018. He points out that though the FDA has pushed this deadline back in the past and is likely to do so again Blount Fine Foods is still moving forward with label updates. William noted that this is no new task for Blount, who’s Clean Label Initiative already has their R&D team searching for new, healthy ways to improve their products at the nutritional level.
