Nutrition Label Reform
Final Rules Webinar Series
If you sell packaged food, your label is changing...
The revised rules represent the largest overhaul to the Nutrition Facts Panel (NFP) and pertinent regulations since the inception of the Nutrition Labeling and Education Act over 20 years ago. If you sell, market or manufacture packaged food and beverages, your product label will likely change as a result of these rules. Label changes could be as minor as updating values on the NFP or as major as format, content and design changes. Our experts will provide a comprehensive view of the impacts the final rules will have on your product labels, databases that feed your nutrition labeling software, PLM (product lifecycle management) systems, customer databases and record keeping procedures.
Don’t delay! Secure your spot today and let GMA get you up to speed quickly on how these rules will impact your company.
By the end of the Nutrition Regulations webinar, participants will have the knowledge and tools to:
- Identify brands and products impacted by final regulations
- Develop new nutrition labeling strategies
- Create an action plan to prepare your operation for the final rules and compliance dates
- Apply requirements to the development of new labels, nutrient and health related claims and marketing strategies
