Nearly one in 10 American workers is employed in the restaurant industry, many of them on track for long-term success.
The FDA has released a long-awaited final federal rule to explain new menu-labeling requirements for chain restaurants. Covered restaurants will have a year to comply. We know that challenges lie ahead: Caloric analysis of hand-prepared food is not an exact science. The National Restaurant Association is here to help you prepare.
Over the years, multiple states and localities had increasingly been pursuing their own menu labeling initiatives. While well intended, the rapidly growing number of proposals was creating a complex and costly regulatory puzzle for restaurants and even greater confusion to customers looking for one simple, consistent standard in their dining experience regardless of whether it was in New York City or Topeka. Read our statement on the FDA's final rule.
We're glad you're here!®
