Where’s the beef from? Cattle ranchers sue to return country-of-origin labeling. 20.6.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Spokane, Wash. • Ranchers on Monday sued the U.S. Department of Agriculture, seeking to force meat to again be labeled if it’s produced in other countries and imported to the United States. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Spokane, seeks to overturn a March 2016 decision by the Department of Agriculture to revoke regulations requiring imported meat products to be labeled with their country of origin. That change allowed imported meat to be sold as U.S. products, the lawsuit said. “Consumer... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Diners have to wait for restaurant calorie counts 29.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Washington • Consumers hoping to find out how many calories are in that burger and fries may have to wait — again. New government rules to help people find out how many calories are in their restaurant meals are set to go into effect next week after years of delays. But they could be pushed back again if grocery stores, convenience stores and pizza delivery chains get their way. Originally passed as part of the health care overhaul in 2010, the law requires restaurants and other establishments t...

Rating Steamboat 22.1.2017 Steamboat Pilot
It used to be easier, Rex Brice said, thinking back to his early days in restaurants. A reviewer — maybe from a nearby newspaper or maybe from a far-off magazine — would come in for dinner, and the staff would strive to be at its best, delivering no-holds-barred flawless service and the best versions of the menu options possible. “When it was one person there writing a story about your restaurant, you paid attention to that person,” Brice said. Print reviews don’t carry the same weight they once did. Instead, Brice and his six Steamboat Springs restaurants are now reviewed daily, their service constantly up for judgment and their food always being rated. Those reviews pop up on Facebook and Google and, even more so on websites like TripAdvisor and Yelp, and they can make or break a new business. “Now, every customer is a food critic, someone who is potentially going to write something positive or negative about your operation.” Brice said. It’s a far different world than Brice came up in, but it’s one he ...

ZEST: Fiesta Jalisco 2.9.2016 Steamboat Pilot
With six restaurants in Colorado, including its mainstay in Steamboat Springs at 445 Anglers Drive, Fiesta Jalisco’s success owes itself to its original family recipes and great food, service and atmosphere.

Small food companies ponder GMO labeling law 5.8.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
New York • A new law that requires food makers to label the packaging of any products that contain genetically modified ingredients has small and medium-sized manufacturers facing some big decisions. Should they try to provide the information on the label itself, or invest in the technology to add scannable codes? Should they change their ingredients to steer clear of such products, and is it worth getting certified as being GMO-free? These are tough questions for companies that may not have fin...

Steamboat briefs: Mountain Tap brewery to host Token Tuesday benefit 10.7.2016 Steamboat Pilot
Steamboat Springs’ newest brewpub, Mountain Tap Brewery, debuts its Token Tuesday community benefit day Tuesday, July 12. Each month, Mountain Tap Brewery selects four local nonprofit organizations to support. On Token Tuesday, each guest receives a wooden nickel token for every craft beer he or she purchases. Before leaving Mountain Tap Brewery, guests can select which of the four organizations they want to support by depositing their tokens in that organization’s Token Tuesday box. At the end of the month, Mountain Tap Brewery empties the boxes, adds up the tokens for each organization and presents each with $1 for every token they received. “We developed this program as a token of our appreciation for all that the nonprofit organizations do in the Steamboat community,” said owner and brewmaster Rich Tucciarone. “Steamboat Springs is chock full of amazing nonprofit organizations that go all-out to make our community the special place it is. Token Tuesdays provide an opportunity for our guests to ...

Vermont becomes first state to label GMOs 2.7.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Montpelier, Vt. • At Mehuron’s Supermarket in Waitsfield, manager Bruce Hyde Jr. said he and his team were ready for the state’s new law requiring genetically modified foods to be labeled as such. But uncertainties abound. Hyde said stores like his have to rely on national food companies to apply labels to products with genetically modified ingredients. But Congress could act next week on a less stringent federal bill that would pre-empt Vermont’s, which went into effect Friday. “It could all be...
