Recent FDA Trans Fat Ruling Increases the Need for Proper Food Labeling, Notes Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling

The Los Angeles based label maker says that, although companies have 3 years to remove trans fats from their foods, any food sellers that are ahead of compliance should relay that fact to their customers with custom sticker labels.

Some popular fried options may need to be reformulated to meet new laws.

Anyone who is out ahead of this law and currently sells food products with no trans fats in them can use this as a selling point to demonstrate the healthiness of their food to customers.

As outlined in a CNN article published on June 16th, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently announced a ban on all artificial trans fats – long criticized as dangerous by health authorities – in food products sold in the United States. While the new guidelines give food sellers and restaurants three years to completely remove trans fats from their products, many companies have already spent the last several years removing these types of oils from their food, as it had become increasingly clear that they were regarded as bad for a person’s health. “Anyone who is out ahead of this law and currently sells food products with no trans fats in them can use this as a selling point to demonstrate the healthiness of their food to customers,” says food label manufacturer Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling. “Food that is free of trans-fats is a must for many health conscious shoppers, and it takes a clear label to convey this trait to consumers.” The product label printing company notes that this is just one of the many ways that labels can be used on food products or any other type of product to encourage a purchase. According to Hi-Tech Printing and Labeling, the functionality of a label often falls into one of two categories:

1. Informative – The primary purpose of a label is to convey to shoppers all of the information that they need to know when considering a purchase. While, for food products, this may be ingredient or health information, like whether or not it contains trans fats, other business labels may need to give information such as company contact information or links to websites where they can learn more about the product. Some of the products most sought-after by customers of Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling are sticker, or pressure sensitive labels, that can be easily applied to the outside of nearly any product. In addition to pressure sensitive labels, Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling also makes packaging labels, size strips, tags, and a variety of other fabric labels.

2. Eye-Catching – Another reason that many companies turn to Los Angeles labels from Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling is to draw the customer in with eye-catching and innovative designs. Hi-Tech Printing & Labeling says that many of their clients come to them because of their ability to create completely custom labels that can mirror whatever aesthetic the company is trying to convey to customers. The best labels are ones that have unique designs to get shoppers to pick the product off the shelf, but then relay all necessary information and potential selling points once they have the product in their hands.
