History of FSMA

By | Cosmetic and Food Regulations | No Comments

At first, food was hunted for but as societies developed people bought from a nearby market and after the industrial revolution and a new form of living people had to buy their food in impersonal superstores where there were aisles and aisles of food from all over the country and all over the world.

People at the time of trading and local markets certainly did not think to wonder about what it was they were eating because they trusted the people they bought the food from.

Is INCO regulation only a costly and time-consuming constraint?

By | Cosmetic and Food Regulations | No Comments

Consider the new regulation as an opportunity.

Consumers increase their level of information. This Regulation protects consumer health by establishing common rules on food information. Consumer information is enhanced and reinforced by making nutrition labeling mandatory, by reinforcing any cases in which the origin must be indicated, and by specifying rules for information legibility as well as rules of fair practice regarding labeling, etc. This text also reinforces consumer safety by requiring allergen labeling for non-prepackaged food.

The U.S. is in the process of establishing its own changes to labeling laws. In February 2014, the FDA, whose mission includes protecting and promoting public health by supervising and regulating food safety, partnered with First Lady Michelle Obama and introduced the new proposed food labels.

The new labels are expected to establish common rules on food and beverage product information, helping consumers to make healthier choices within the broad range of options available in today's marketplace. A concerted effort has also been made to present information that reflects current trends. With larger portions the norm, the suggestion is to update calorie counts to account for today's “real life” servings. Other modifications include a clearer display of added sugars and other components such as vitamins and allergens.

This new labeling is part of a more general plan known as the FSMA. FSMA first discussions began in 2011 and are still on-going. In 2015, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration was allocated an additional $27.5 million for food safety activities, and, under the president's budget proposal for fiscal year 2016, the agency would get another $109.5 million to help implementing the act.

INCO changes

By | Cosmetic and Food Regulations | No Comments

Last December, the new E.U. n°1169/2011 regulation, commonly referred to as INCO (Information to Consumers), was put in place to enhance food labeling. The regulation has already led to significant changes in what consumers know about the food they buy.

Being in compliance with regulation is essential for companies. As the regulatory volume increases considerably, food industries, food service and retailers must manage and follow efficiently data and documentation attached to products from R&D to the shelves through production, marketing, quality etc.
