Food News


THIS SECTION IS FOR NEWS AND INTERESTING STORIES RELATED TO FOOD, NUTRITION AND FOOD PROCESSING. THEY ARE NOT NECESSARILY RELATED TO KOSHER BUT MAY BE OF INTEREST TO THE KOSHER CONSUMER, MANUFACTURER OR MASHGIACH.

The following news is from the IFT and SmartLabelFAQ on December 2, 2015.

The Grocery Manufacturers Association (GMA) is launching SmartLabel. Major manufacturers will be using QR Codes to provide information about products to consumers. "More than 30 U.S. food, beverage, and consumer products companies are already committed to using SmartLabel, including: ConAgra Foods, Campbell Soup, Hershey, J.M. Smucker Company, General Mills, McCormick, and Unilever."

The editor asked if kosher information will be included: "At this time, kosher is a voluntary attribute, that each brand can decide to disclose and if they choose to-the certifying agency would be listed. All ingredients for products are required and therefore, someone using SmartLabelâ„¢ would be able to see if a product contained dairy, etc."
