Consumer focus on health and well-being has meant that the focus has invariably shifted to food & beverages. Today, consumers are paying increasing attention to the ingredients in food products. This has led manufacturers to broaden their ‘health and wellness’ product offerings. In a bid to make their products appeal to a wider audience, manufacturers have started to prominently display the USP on the product packaging. Claims, such as ‘100% organic’, ‘gluten-free’, and ‘Halal-certified’ have become ubiquitous. However, it is pertinent to mention here that not all manufacturers deliver on what they promise. And, this has got Tricia Thompson of Gluten-Free Watchdog worried.
Concerned over the rising spate of “farcical claims”, Thompson has urged the FDA to step in and monitor how companies promote their products. As packaging has become one of the most important tools for marketing and sales, many manufacturers are capitalizing on confusion regulations to consolidate their base. However, this not only violates customer trust, but also poses risks to health and well-being. Thompson has started a petition, which urges the FDA to enable consumers to report farcical branding on the FDA website. She also wants action to be taken on those manufacturers who make fake claims about their products.
