Too many food companies find out there IS a labeling regulation when they are first threatened by a lawsuit or notified of regulatory agency action. Get the bare bones of USA food label regulations in this 7-hour workshop hosted by Cal Poly Pomona. This beginning workshop is for those new to what must appear on a food label. The workshop is intended for food industry professionals, agri-business faculty, entrepreneurs, registered dietitians, food science & food-related business students.
The practical tools and examples will help attendees create a skeleton of the 7-basic label elements. Take the fright out of how to declare “added sugars”, “additives”, and “dietary fibers” when transforming labels before the new nutrition facts deadline of July 2018. The workshop will demonstrate where to find the rules, calculations, and disclosures for the basic “packed with” or “free from” nutrient claims.
Save the date: Thursday, April 26, 2018 at Agriscapes at Cal Poly Pomona. Visit www.cpplabel.eventbrite.com for upcoming information and registration details. Continuing Education Units/Contact Hours have been applied for through the International Food Science Certification Commission (IFSCC) for certified food scientists and Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics.
