April 21, 2014 - PRLog -- TraceGains’ hosted a webinar on Thursday, April 17, 2014 which was co-presented by Elizabeth (Beth) Johnson, MS, RD, founder and principal of Food Directions LLC. The webinar was well-attended and participants received helpful information from Johnson as she addressed the FDA's proposed updates and the implications the nutrition label changes.

Johnson explained, "After nearly two decades, FDA is proposing changes to its original nutrition facts label.  While sweeping in nature, the Agency's proposal will impact over 700,000 packaged foods and could cost the food industry at least $2 billion.  From updated serving sizes to major format revisions, understanding the proposed changes will help teams identify potential problems, which can be addressed now, and prepare for the anticipate costs companies will  face in the near-term."

Gary Nowacki, CEO of TraceGains Noted, “This topic has gotten a lot of attention across the board – industry, consumers, and government.  The Obama administration estimates the Nutrition Facts label changes could cost the industry $2 billion, but would lead to up to $30 billion in benefits over time.  Regardless whether people agree or disagree with the cost or benefits side of the equation, it is a serious economic discussion.”
