How To Include FDA Supplement Facts With Tabular Labels

Posted by Advanced Labels NW

Tabular labels for FDA Supplement Facts

For dietary supplement containers with limited label space, including all the information required by the FDA can be a Herculean task. The Supplement Facts panel alone can occupy the entire available surface of some labels, leaving FDA Supplement Factsno room for additional information required by the FDA.

If you somehow manage to cram every bit of required information onto your labels, the overall appearance of the final design may not be very appealing. Without a strong shelf appeal, your brand will have little chance competing on the store shelf alongside more eye-catching products.

Find a label printer

Print Brokers and Contract Packaging companies (co-packers) are facing increased demand from brand owners to become true turnkey, one stop shops.

Brand managers are looking for a co-packer that can facilitate all their filling and packaging needs, to act as a single point of contact. This does not necessarily mean the co-packer must invest in every service under the sun, though, when the same services can be offered through close relationships with partner companies.

In the same way, brokers are frequently called upon to make referrals to packaging suppliers and fulfillment companies to round out their print offerings.
