Course Details:

Designed as a comprehensive overview of food labelling under the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), this program explores the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, the Code for Federal Regulations (Title 21), the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act, and other valuable resource guides as they relate to food labelling. Through presentations and workshop exercises, this program builds your knowledge and confidence to navigate the U.S. food labelling landscape. Comprehensive resource materials, including the Food Suite® Smart Tools US Food Labeling (Foods Under FDA) CD, are provided to enable you to begin working on U.S. food labelling immediately. At the end of the program, you will be able to:

  • Identify and define the package, the label and their features (principle panel display, information panel, common name, net contents, ingredient list, nutrition facts, country of origin, etc.)
  • Understand technical features related to nutrition labelling, nutrient content claims and health claims
  • Discuss ingredient labelling, allergen labelling, nomenclature, incidental additives, and processing aids
  • Recognize food labelling warnings, notices and safe handling statements
  • Appreciate nutrient content and health claims
  • Identify proper use of descriptive terms (e.g. fresh, natural, organic)

Please Note: Due to the time constraints of this one-day program, this workshop will not cover pet food, infant food labelling, dietary supplements, restaurant foods, or alcoholic beverages.
