These new regulations also mandate that upon request food service operations must also provide complete nutritional analysis of all products served. These new regulations incorporate movie theatres with 20 or more facilities. This panel will feature Dr. Claudine Kavanaugh of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and will discuss all aspects of the new regulations while providing real-world and practical solutions so that you may be able to comply effective December 1, 2015.
