The New European food regulation direct concern to U.S. companies
The European Food Information Regulation (1169/2011) may impact more American businesses than one would initially suppose. According to this new EU law, consumers must have access to a considerable amount of nutritional information before a company can sell prepackaged food on the web or via some other form of distance sale. Compliance is expected as of December 14, 2014. Those who don’t have this information accessible and up to date will be barred access to the sizeable world of European online retailers.
While its always bad news for American businesses that they will have to deal with additional restrictions or regulations in order to work on the old continent, the good news is Edicom, long a leader in EDI, GDSN and catalog solutions, has one of the first Data Pools certified by GS1 capable of synchronizing not just information in the Global Data Synchronization network but also more industry-specific initiatives like, for instance, complying with the European Food Information Regulation.
