Quality Assurance & Regulatory

Quality Assurance and Regulatory are on-going responsibilities for any company. As it relates to the food industry, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is the guiding regulatory body for a number of areas impacting a product’s formulation.

Meeting the Mark

Nutritional content (especially as it relates to protein), marketing and label claims, consumer awareness of ingredients (including allergens), as well as the calculation and presentation of a Nutrition Facts Panel and Principal Display Panel, are all examples of outputs that fall within the “QA & Regulatory” realm. This level of expertise is essential to upholding your brand’s integrity, and further is not a final destination, but rather an on-going process. FareScience is accustomed to performing or subcontracting the necessary work, establishing company standard operating procedures, and creating a sustainable, organized file structure to capture this commitment.
