Gourmet Brands

Manufacturers are seeking out international opportunities in a push to open up new markets, with products and brands now commonly being sold in multiple countries.

With this comes the challenges of foreign food regulations, which vary widely from country to country. This exposes manufacturers to hidden risks, such as having products with non-compliant labels, and costly withdrawals and recalls.

The Problem

When Australian company Gourmet Brand began exploring the export market to diversify their portfolio and increase their global presence, they were faced with a major challenge: the need to comply to the US FDA and USDA food regulations, including the recently updated Nutritional Facts Panels.

With food legislation and regulations changing on a regular basis, it is very hard and time consuming to keep up to date and ensure all the labels used stay compliant with all the various local legislation. To remove any concerns and ensure all labels are always compliant, the use of external regulatory and technical experts was the obvious choice.
