In today’s regulatory environment, keeping up with the ever evolving rules, regulations and interpretations of the FDA and USDA regarding food labeling can be daunting, especially if one hasn’t had the fundamentals of food label compliance. This workshop is designed to provide participants with the necessary knowledge and skills to understand the basic requirements of food labeling, which are the foundation that all other advanced topics of labeling are based on. Designed for new regulatory professionals, as a basic refresher course, continuing education for the non-technical and even the food label curious, this 2 day course is exactly as the title indicates, Back to Basics.

Learning Objectives:
• Understand the FDA and USDA requirements concerning food labeling
• Gain a basic understanding of the five mandatory elements of a food label
• Learn the regulatory requirements for each of the mandatory elements
• Obtain in-depth knowledge of the updated Nutrition Facts label and required calculations for serving sizes, dual columns, rounding rules and approved ingredient function

*Mérieux NutriSciences reserves the right to cancel if the class minimum of 5 attendees is not achieved. Maximum number of participants is 15.
