Food labeling requirements in the U.S. are already complex, and you need to stay ahead of the curve as they are being redefined. Upcoming implementation of the 2016 FDA changes to the Nutrition Facts Label and the forthcoming regulations responding to the 2016 federal biotechnology (GMO) disclosure law are just some of the major regulatory and policy changes that are impacting the food & beverage industry. In addition, as product developers reformulate to react to the prevailing drivers of the marketplace (e.g., clean/clear labeling, corporate social responsibility, and responsible sourcing) they need to understand the regulatory implications.

This course will provide you with the foundation needed to be aware of the required, and permitted, contents of food labels and labeling, as well as to identify emerging issues relating to labeling content.

What previous attendees say:
“This labeling course has exceeded my expectation. I came in expecting that the class would be monotonous, but that was not the case. It was a lot of materials that we covered in 2 days, but at the end I went home with a better understanding about the subject.”

“I really enjoyed that the presenters incorporated humor and anecdotes into their presentations, as it made topics that are dry much more interesting.”

“Very helpful especially for people that are non-food scientists. Serves as a good guide on issues to look out for in labeling.”
