This legislation is not going to go away, so you will be needing signs, labels and labeling machines. Make sure you don’t pay too much!
According to an article in the denverpost.com titled New meat labeling rules take effect in US! by By M.L. Johnson, Associated Press which was first posted on 5/24/2113, Shoppers in the U.S. will soon have more information about where their meat comes from after new federal labeling rules went into effect Thursday 5/30/2013.
These labels will be required to indicate where the meat came from or its country of origin as well as where it has been processed which could be different. Although many organizations are not in favor of this legislation, it is not going to go away any time soon. The cost of insuring that the foods we buy and consume are safe is enormous and the loses associated with sick or down time related to food borne illness has been out of control for a long time.
There are however ways to mitigate your expense when deploying new programs.
