Use Custom Labels from Lightning Labels to Increase Awareness during American Heart Month

Heart-healthy foods are in focus in February.

Manufacturers of heart-healthy products should use custom labels to increase the appeal of their items and help customers stick to a smart diet.

February is American Heart Month, intended to make consumers and companies alike think about what they're doing for the sake of heart health. Food packaging could play a pivotal role in these efforts, as shoppers today are paying more attention to the ingredients in their meals than ever before.

Important Labeling Choices
Brands that offer heart-healthy foods can prioritize nutrition label changes during American Heart Month, either specifically mentioning the event or simply emphasizing the potential benefits for customers on healthy stickers and labels.

Actual changes to labels can take several forms. Updated nutritional labels or ingredients listings may help manufacturers' stay up to date with changes to regulations. Logos from heart-health organizations can make a direct appeal to consumers' interest in eating well, provided companies can meet the applicable regulations. Recipes can show practical ways to turn simple products into health-focused meals.

Time for Change
Food manufacturers with a keen understanding of the schedules in their industries can take several opportunities throughout the year to make special changes to their healthy labels. American Heart Month is one such time.

"Consumers today are watching what they eat more closely than ever," said Lightning Labels Director of Business Development AnneMarie Campbell. "Manufacturers of heart-healthy products should use custom labels to increase the appeal of their items and help customers stick to a smart diet."

American Heart Month begins soon, but manufacturers still have time to adjust their labeling.
