America’s beverage companies are strongly in favor of providing consumers with the accurate information they need when it comes to making decisions on nutrition and diet.
That’s why we applaud the “Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act,” which passed in the House of Representatives just last week.
“The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act requires that food labeling in the United States be consistent and based on sound science. The bill increases coordination between the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), giving our nation’s foremost experts the final authority on food safety and labeling policy.” The Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO) said in its statement supporting the bill.
And most importantly, “The Safe and Accurate Food Labeling Act” requires that food labeling in the United States be consistent and based on sound science.
This information that sticks to the facts and doesn’t portray any one group or person’s biases is the kind of government regulation people need.
“The Safe and Accurate Labeling Act” is proof that when industry and government work together, we can achieve real and lasting solutions that keep Americans’ best interests in mind.
