FAQ of the Month

Q: Can I create labels for multiple countries from one Recipe in Genesis R&D Foods?

A: You can create multiple labels from one Recipe in Genesis. Keep in mind that you will want to consider if it is appropriate to use the same recipe and ingredients for different countries’ labels. Consider if any aspects of any of the ingredients differ from one country to another, such as sugars definitions, names to be used in Ingredient Statements, or other points of information. For some, it may be more useful to maintain specific ingredient records and separate Recipes from one country to the next.
