How does the new menu-labeling law apply to you?

As restaurant operators scramble to understand final nutrition-disclosure rules, the NRA aims to offer clarity on common questions.

We recently invited attorneys from Hogan Lovells, our outside regulatory counsel, to discuss the law’s complexities and answer operator questions. The regulations, released Nov. 25 by the FDA, affects entities with at least 20 locations nationwide operating under the same name. Affected operations must comply by Dec. 1, 2015.

NRA members can listen to the audio and follow the presentation. Topics included:

  • Which entities are affected, such as variations of a business name or whether an operation is corporate- or franchised-owned.
  • Which foods are affected.
  • What information must appear on menus and menu boards.
  • How compliance is determined.
  • How the rules apply to different types of menu items.
  • Whether a food is considered the same item when it’s tweaked for regional taste or dietary practices.
  • Combo meals and variable menu items.
  • Alcoholic beverages.
  • Point-of-sale and promotional materials.
  • Self-service items.
  • Compliance certification.
  • Hotel breakfasts.
  • Dipping sauces.
