The FDA announced on December 1, 2014 that within one year all food service operations with 20 or more outlets must list calorie counts on all menus and menu boards. 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. Dr. Kavanaugh 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.
