In order to alleviate supply chain disruption due to COVID-19, the FDA issued a temporary policy this week allowing food manufacturers flexibility in food labeling. The temporary easement grants manufacturers the ability to substitute an ingredient that is currently not available with a similar ingredient, without having to create a new label. This newly-created option allows supply chains to continue to flow in a seamless fashion to get products to consumers in an efficient way during this trying time.
