Edge continues to push for accurate labeling for dairy and plant-based food products. The public is still being misled that these imitation products are nutritionally similar to real dairy products. A recent survey confirmed this.

FDA is collecting input on the use of dairy names on plant-based product labels. FDA’s goal is to learn how customers understand these products and determine if changes to existing labeling rules are needed. It is critical that FDA hears from the dairy community during this unprecedented opportunity.
