USDA New Mandatory Nutrition-Labeling Rule

Hobart Weigh Wrap Products

USDA

Comply with new USDA labeling rule without compromising sales

As part of Hobart’s ongoing customer support, we wanted to provide insight into the USDA’s new labeling requirements, which go into effect Jan. 1, 2012. Grocers must display nutritional information on certain meat and poultry product packaging. However, as most grocers know, covering products with multiple or larger labels can conceal product quality and hurt sales.

Hobart’s wrapping products enable grocers to display the newly mandated nutritional information in a way that showcases the color and quality of meat products. With our wrapping products, grocers can comply with the new rule and enhance sales at the same time.

Benefits of Hobart labeling solutions:

  • Optimize the label space on standard 2.25” width label formats by placing nutritional information alongside Safe Handling instructions by using compressed labeling formats.
  • Keep products visible to shoppers by placing safe handling labels on the bottom of the package using bottom label applier solutions.
  • Obtain compliance with high resolution, 3” wide label Access printing technology.

To help you understand the new mandate, Hobart has created a white paper to share our weigh wrap knowledge. Click the following resources below for more information about the new labeling rule: 

In addition, Hobart has provided examples of standard labels that meet the new mandate. Find your product below and click on the image of the label to save your printable PDF.
