Reader Q+A

I have a sauce that I want to sell in bulk to foodservice. Do I have to have a Nutrition Facts label on each container?

Products sold to foodservice may omit the Nutrition Facts label provided the product will be further processed (not sold in the packaging) and a nutrient content or health claim is not made on the label or labeling. 

While a properly formatted Nutrition Facts label is not required on foodservice packaging, most manufacturers choose to provide the nutrition information voluntarily in one form or another because many of their customers require it to comply with restaurant menu labeling regulations.
