Labeling Basics and Beyond

Food labels are increasingly scrutinized by trial lawyers and consumer groups for their compliance with FDA regulations and also for their intent to convey truthful or potentially misleading information to consumers.  The consequences for some companies have included significant legal fees to defend their products, label changes, and loss of consumer trust.  Protect your company by understanding FDA regulations within this litigious environment.

This one and a half day course will cover the basics of food labeling and more. On the first half day we will cover basic labeling material including what is necessary on the primary display panel, information panel and nutrition facts panel.
Once the basics have been reviewed, we will take the second day to discuss more current “hot topic” issues including claims, statement of identity issues and class action lawsuits that are becoming more predatory in targeting food labeling. We will also be on hand to answer questions. 
Why attend?

Once completed, an attendee should be able to review packaging to see if it is in compliance with FDA and should be aware of associated risks with making claims. Attendees should also be equipped with resources to consult if questions arise.
