ConAgra Foods has developed nutritional labelling for a range of its products, the US food giant has announced.

The labelling will feature on brands such as Healthy Choice, Chef Boyardee and Orville Redenbacher's and uses the US Department of Agriculture's MyPyramid to show food facts and dietary recommendations.

"ConAgra Foods' approach provides consumers with simple and clear nutrition information using the USDA's science-based dietary recommendations rather than creating yet another nutrition standard," said Gary Rodkin, ConAgra Foods CEO.

The new labelling will appear in stores in May.
