Nutrition Labeling of Single-Ingredient Products and
Ground or Chopped Meat and Poultry Products

From March 1, 2012, USDA FSIS requires nutrition labeling of the major cuts of single-ingredient, raw meat and poultry products, unless an exemption applies.  Nutrition information for these products will be required either on their label or at their point-of-purchase (e.g., by sign or brochure).

For more information and to download the sign that can be displayed please go to:

Adams Farm profiled in Edible Boston’s Fall 2011 edition:
“Just before Christmas in 2006 the Adams family’s plans and their business literally went up in flames. Since then, they have rebuilt from the ground up with design help from Dr. Temple Grandin. A thoughtfully designed, humane system that takes the animals through the slaughtering process.” Read more and see some great photographs by following this link: Edible Boston Article in PDF.
