Advanced Techniques in Labeling FDA Regulated Foods

Need to simplify your Labeling Compliance protocols?
Having trouble applying FDA's requirements to your food labels?

Agenda | Cancellation Policy | Enrollment and Location Information

Participants will acquire a thorough understanding of the regulations pertaining to food ingredients and where that information is located on the FDA website. They will be able to distinguish between different types of labeling claims and properly use them on their food packages or in any labeling materials. Additionally, they will be able to assess any food label or labeling for compliance with FDA regulations.

Who should attend?

Persons responsible for regulatory compliance with FDA food labeling regulations.

This is an advanced program designed for persons who already have basic food labeling knowledge obtained from:

  • Food industry organization seminars
  • FDA training sessions
  • Extensive work experience

After a half day of detailed discussion about FDA's current legal requirements concerning food additives, GRAS substances, label claims and "front-of-package" symbols, you will be provided unique opportunities to:

  1. Test your knowledge and skills in determining whether nutrient content claims or health claims can be made for specific food items.
  2. Determine the legal acceptability of several currently marketed food products, and decide how to bring these products into compliance with FDA requirements.
The two workshop sessions are one-half day each.

You won't want to miss this one!
Don't wait to register. Because of the intense nature of the label review and development activities and the desirability for individual discussions, the course size is limited to 36 participants.
