The Internet has made it easy to contact food companies for more information about using their products. While you used to have to write a company, an answer is now often just a click or a call away.
Most major food companies feature a "Contact us" section on their website, where they offer a phone number and/or email information.
Before contacting the company, check if there is a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) section. If a company offers several products, you may need to zero in on one product line on the website to find the information for that product.
Following are links to the contact section on the websites of several major food companies. If you don't see a food listed specifically by name, check the parent company name to find a product. Many companies manufacture several brand lines. Email us if there are additional contact pages you feel it would be helpful to include.
