The U.S. Food and Drug Administration held a public meeting to discuss the agency's Nutrition Innovation Strategy.
Title: FDA's Comprehensive, Multi-Year Nutrition Innovation Strategy
Date: July 26, 2018
Time: 8:30 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.
Location: Hilton Washington DC/Rockville Hotel, 1750 Rockville Pike, Rockville, MD 20852

In a statement, Commissioner Scott Gottlieb, M.D., emphasized that the public meeting will begin an important dialogue on various aspects of the strategy with a variety of stakeholders. In his March 29 speech to the National Food Policy Conference, the Commissioner recognized the critical role the FDA plays in protecting public health through improvements to the nutritional profile of foods that compose the American diet. He stated that developing strategies to improve nutrition can be a transformative step toward reducing the burden of many chronic diseases, ranging from diabetes to certain cancers to heart disease. As such, the FDA hosted a public meeting to give interested parties an opportunity to discuss various features of the FDA's Nutrition Innovation Strategy, which promotes public health through efforts to empower consumers to make better and more informed decisions about their diets and health, foster the development of healthier food options, and expand the opportunities to use nutrition to reduce morbidity and mortality due to chronic disease.

Since announcing the Strategy earlier this year, the FDA has identified several areas where it believes there are opportunities to improve FDA's approach to nutrition policy, by encouraging industry innovation to improve the nutrition and healthfulness of food and by providing consumers with informative food labeling to make healthy food choices. These tactics include developing a standard icon or symbol for the claim “healthy;” a more efficient review strategy for the FDA to employ when evaluating qualified health claims; allowing for labeling statements or claims on food products that could facilitate innovation to promote healthful eating patterns; approaches for modernizing standards of identity; possible changes that could make ingredient information more consumer friendly; and implementing the FDA's educational campaign for consumers about the updated Nutrition Facts Label that consumers will be seeing in the marketplace.
