It has come to our attention that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is requiring all owners, operators, or agents in charge of domestic or foreign facilities that manufacture/process, pack, or hold food for consumption in the U.S. to register the facility with the FDA. The deadline to re-register with the FDA is Thursday, January 31.
While we are not fluent in the operations of the FDA, we want all of your producers to be prepared for these requirements so their supply chain into the US is not interrupted. From what we can gather, all FDA-registered facilities have to re-register every two years. It seems that this deadline applies for just the re-registration clients, not newly registered wineries.
