PHOENIX -- The National Bulk Vendors Association is seeking to help operators to navigate new Food and Drug Administration labeling regulations that require bulk vending companies to comply with the agency's calorie-disclosure rules that go into effect on Dec 1. According to the regulations, specifically section 4205 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Healthcare Act, operators with 20 or more machines must include the calorie count of the vended product, serving size and contact information on or near machines.

The NBVA is compiling an online list of FDA-compliant suppliers that provide the required information on display cards, along with detailed information regarding the new regulations. While those operators with less than 20 bulk vending machines are not required to comply with the new regulations, the FDA is encouraging them to voluntarily post signage.

The association is also planning to add to the resources available to its members. This effort is said to include stickers for machines as well as other items that will assist operators in bringing machines into compliance.

For additional information, contact the NBVA at tel. (888) 628-2872 or visit nbva.org/calorie_labeling.
