Principal Display Panel

A principal display panel (PDP) must be included on all food sold in packaged form. The PDP is the part of the label that is most likely to be displayed for retail sale. The product identity statement and net quantity of contents declaration must be included on the PDP. At times, other required statements must also be displayed on the PDP.

Product Identity Statement. The product identity statement is intended to communicate important information to the consumer about the type and form of food contained in the product package. It should be incorporated into the PDP with sufficient prominence that the consumer can readily view it on a retail shelf. The terminology, as well as the placement and type size, of the identity statement are dictated by the regulations.

Net Quantity of Contents. The purpose of the net quantity of contents declaration is to tell the consumer the amount of product the package contains.
