Nutrition & Ingredients

  • Nutrition Facts Panel (NFP)

    Nutrition Facts Panel (NFP)

    Creation of a nutrition facts panel based on the formulation of ingredients or 100-gram laboratory data as provided. The deliverable is created using PLC’s proprietary software, EZ Form and includes an FDA or USDA compliant serving size, proper value rounding, and graphic formatting based on the Total Available Labeling Space. The deliverable is returned via email in a PDF, BMP, or EPS file format.

    For NFP Optimization including formatting options, RACC selection, and other graphic needs, we recommend scheduling a Consult with a member from our team.

  • Ingredient Statement

    Ingredient Statement

    Ingredient Statement creation involves organization of information from ingredient specifications and formatting the information in order of predominance. PLC does not review the compliance of supplier provided information. For feedback on the supplier-provided information, research on the appropriate names of ingredients and/or optimization, consultation is required under Regulatory Consulting, $300/hour, 30 minute minimum.

USDA Approvals

  • USDA Submission

    USDA Submission

    Basic Label Submission involves the submission of an application for label approval to the applicable division, through the online LSAS portal. Applications are submitted to USDA’s Label Program and Delivery Staff (LPDS) for meat and poultry labels or Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) for child nutrition labels. Feedback includes a PDF of USDA Summary Documentation along with PLC’s recommended next steps through email communication.

    Additional services may accompany the application in order to expedite the process even further. We recommend adding the Application Prescreen to catch errors in label artwork prior to submission.

  • Application Prescreen

    Application Prescreen

    Application Prescreens involve an assessment of generic eligibility and the presence of mandatory features for labels required to be submitted to the USDA. Feedback is provided to clients via email communication and includes recommended next steps to achieve approval, with a focus on missing elements or immediate concerns with an application that the USDA may address. For a formal comprehensive review, please consider our Compliance Report option found under "Label Review".

    Application Prescreens are billed on an hourly basis, with an estimated review time of 30-60 minutes. Additional guidance or questions will be applied to the overall review time.

The selection of an “Extraordinary Circumstances” should only be chosen if the product has been retained ("tagged") by program personnel at official establishments or when there is some other unforeseeable impediment to movement of meat or poultry product, and a Temporary label approval would remove the impediment. For complete policy guidance see the FSIS website:

Document Upload

Label Artwork (PDF or Image) is required for a Compliance Report. For additional services, additional documentation may apply. We recommend you consolidate your documents into a zip file. If your files are too large for upload, contact [email protected] for assistance processing your order.
