MARCH 2017: The Great Lakes Graphics Association (GLGA) has announced that CL&D Graphics is an award winner in the 2017 Graphics Excellence Awards (GEA) competition. The GEA competition is one of the largest printing competitions in the nation. CL&D Graphics, Inc. achieved an Award of Excellence in the Flexo Narrow Web Labels and Wraps, Rolled Products/Pressure Sensitive Category for the EFX Sports Karbolyn Matte/Gloss Shrink Sleeve.

A panel of out-of-state judges with extensive experience in printing and print production examined the work and each entry was judged on its own merit in a category with similar printed pieces. The judging criteria included registration, crossovers, clarity and neatness, sharpness of halftones and line drawings, richness and tonal qualities of color, paper and ink selection, ink coverage, difficulty of printing, effective contrast or softness, finishing, bindery and overall visual impact.

NEW LABEL REQUIREMENTS

FDA Revision of the Nutrition and Supplement Facts

CL&D will help you comply with the FDA's Nutrition Label Requirements. Nearly all food and beverage manufacturers will need to adjust their labeling to meet the new FDA standards. The label must include:

  • List of nutrients that are required or permitted to be declared.
  • Provides updated Daily Reference Values and Reference Daily Intake Values that are based on current dietary recommendations.
  • Amends requirements for foods represented or purported to be specifically for children under the age of 4 years and pregnant and lactating women and establishes nutrient reference values specifically for these population subgroups.
  • Revises the format and appearance of the Nutrition Facts label.

Compliance Deadline Dates:
UPDATE: The FDA announced on Tuesday, June 13, 2017 that they will be extending the deadline dates for the Nutrition Facts Label Compliance. They have not determined the new deadline dates yet. We will post the new dates as soon as it is determined by the FDA.

Former Deadlines: July 26, 2018 for manufacturers with $10 million or more in annual food sales.
July 26, 2019 for manufacturers with less than $10 million in annual food sales.
