HHS/FDA RIN: 0910-AI80 Publication ID: Spring 2023 
Title: ●Front-of-Package Nutrition Labeling 

This proposed rule would require the front of food labels to display certain nutrition information to help consumers, especially those with lower nutrition knowledge, make more informed dietary choices.  Front-of-package (FOP) nutrition labeling is intended to complement the Nutrition Facts label on packaged foods by giving consumers additional context to help them quickly and easily identify foods that are part of a healthy eating pattern. A variety of FOP labeling systems have been adopted in countries world-wide and the experience in these countries suggests that FOP labeling may aid the ability to make healthier choices.  This proposed rule is part of FDA’s nutrition efforts to help address the epidemic of diet-related chronic disease by, among other things, empowering consumers with nutrition information to help them more easily identify healthier choices and encouraging industry innovation to produce healthier foods.
