The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) published a Nutrition Facts label " Industry Resources " web page to help businesses comply with the requirements of the final rules, which were issued in May 2016. Businesses have until July 26, 2018, or July 26, 2019 for manufacturers with less than $10 million in annual food sales, to bring their Nutrition and Supplement Facts labels for packaged foods into compliance with the final rules. The new Industry Resources page features frequently asked questions, annotated graphic illustrations of new label specifications for the most commonly used label formats, high-resolution examples of label formats and links to final rules and reference materials. The page also includes tables from the final rules showing daily values for vitamins, minerals and food components, as well as reference amounts customarily consumed per eating occasion.
