Food Labeling Workshop April 2013

Complying with Regulatory Requirements
for the Labeling of Packaged Foods

This comprehensive two-and-a-half-day workshop on food labeling rules will present the fundamentals for labeling of food and beverage products regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and meat and poultry products regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food Safety and Inspection Service (USDA–FSIS).

GMA’s staff experts in food labeling and nutrition will teach food company personnel and others involved in label design the food labeling skills they need, whether they are responsible for labeling compliance, food product marketing or product development. Instruction, interaction and hands-on activities provide an intensive introduction to labeling rules or an intermediate refresher course.

The workshop curriculum features a practical dimension through the incorporation of the wide variety of labeling questions received by GMA's technical assistance staff from its members on a daily basis. The material goes beyond the theoretical and uses actual labels and packages to explain and illustrate key points.

Topics to be covered include:
  • General statutory authorities and rules governing all required label elements
  • Special labeling provisions
  • Information about food label claims and the latest developments on food labeling rules
The registration fee includes all course materials as well as breakfasts, lunches and refreshments.
Space is limited for this popular workshop, which historically sells out.
